If you feel that's irresponsible, that's ok. Others don't. And that's ok, too. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27720223
Yes, I do ignore those who laugh or ridicule.
Anyone can laugh or ridicule as they want. It won't change anything.
Why wouldn't people hold Icke to at least the standards of a typical newspaper in his journalism?
I would love your opinion on which of the following standards Icke is actually following in his journalism?
Accuracy and standards for factual reporting
Reporters are expected to be as accurate as possible given the time allotted to story preparation and the space available, and to seek reliable sources.
Events with a single eyewitness are reported with attribution. Events with two or more independent eyewitnesses may be reported as fact. Controversial facts are reported with attribution.
Independent fact-checking by another employee of the publisher is desirable
Corrections are published when errors are discovered
Defendants at trial are treated only as having "allegedly" committed crimes, until conviction, when their crimes are generally reported as fact (unless, that is, there is serious controversy about wrongful conviction).
Opinion surveys and statistical information deserve special treatment to communicate in precise terms any conclusions, to contextualize the results, and to specify accuracy, including estimated error and methodological criticism or flaws.
