No review of qualified contemporary supporters of that dissenter's ideas. And of course, no question of whether what is taken to be evidence for whatever standard theory could possibly fit as well into another theory. Humans apparently can't help but create new religions, replete with dogma and priesthoods, and the evidence for that is overwhelming.
And therein lies the problem - peer review.
The way it seems to work is roughly as follows:
A conference hall full of these people all join together & say that "so & so is wrong, we can prove it is wrong" and when asked for that proof they reply "we are all agreed it is wrong". At one point, the consensus opinion was that Bruno was a heretic & burned alive because of the medieval equivalent of "peer review" said he was wrong.
That is not Scientific Method, it is mass bullying by consensus ganging up on what they think of as mavericks.
The reality is that it does not take 1,000 to agree for something to be true - it takes just one person to be right. Arp summed it up beautifully when he translated the oft-used rejoinder "this violates the laws of physics" to read as "In this golden epoch, we know everything there is to know".
You will never get a man to understand something his salary depends on him not understanding.

“There is no escape from a black hole in classical theory,” Hawking told Nature. Quantum theory, however, “enables energy and information to escape from a black hole”. A full explanation of the process, the physicist admits, would require a theory that successfully merges gravity with the other fundamental forces of nature. But that is a goal that has eluded physicists for nearly a century. “The correct treatment,” Hawking says, “remains a mystery.”
Dear Steven Hawking,
With all due respect, we are suggesting that gravity is the manifestation of a difference between electrostatic attraction and electrostatic repulsion.
