Blaxill was caught making a mistake and a blogger sent him a
correction by email. He refuses to publicly acknowledge his error and
post a correction.

This is spin.

Probey omits that the alleged error was not in the referred article
but in another one. (A typical ad hominem attack.) And what was it
about? The issue is how many millions of dollars did Paul Offit make
from Rotateq patent. Blaxill and Olmsted's estimate is 29,
the blogger's estimate is 6, and Offit himself would not disclose.

Does it matter? Not at all. For some, it does not matter because
"Rotateq made Offit a millionaire". For others, it does not matter
because there is nothing improper about becoming a millionaire.

So much for the alleged error.
