I haven’t watched a single episode of the show for this reason. I watched the original Cosmos as a kid and loved it. But I didn’t trust this Cosmos.
I stopped watching the Science channel (USA) completely around this time in 2013 for this reason.
Minor “Science guys” started showing up more and more, becoming stars. Dissenting opinions I heard less and less until I heard none at all….
…and I could feel a shifting in the winds and I didn’t like the smell.
