Well, for starters the Republican congressman who publicly criticized Pres.
Jensen for his remarks. Also, you've missed a quite legitimate parsing of my
sentence. When one says x is in defiance of y, that implies that "belief in x" is
in defiance of y. I think that's pretty standard English.

And I trust you read Pres. Jensen's answer to the question?

I think the reason Pres. Jensen was assigned to talk to the Trib and not the D.N.
was precisely because of the Trib's reputation; it was sending Daniel into the
lion's den, and is all the more useful, politically, for that reason. That is, no
one can accuse him of taking only soft ball lob shots.
