Hm. Not sure if you are accusing me and/or David of generating "fake
news" or not.
Truisms positioned to cast deniable doubt on a nearby statement are
one stock in trade of those who really DO attack the truth. By using
such a device, you risk being considered such a person.
To avoid that risk, you might consider pointing out errors and untruths
specifically and explicitly.
 Happy to explain this device further if needed. I've left the
"juxtaposed statement", i.e. the quote you were apparently responding
to, below, so people can see what I mean. A worked example of something
very similar can be found here: http://biplane.com.au/blog/?p=282
