When you lead with a personal attack--calling Ken Ham the "Ayatollah of Appalachia"--it's a good bet the article doesn't get any better.  I'm guessing that back in the days when "logic" was taught in schools, pulling that stunt would get you an instant F in college rhetoric.  

(difference between this and a hit piece; hit pieces are traditionally written to be biased without making it completely obvious that the writer is biased--you have to be "in the know" to figure out the writer had the article written before he talked to any sources.  I don't know what you would call this....well, at least I don't know any printable terms for this)

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
