And the cry goes up, "Link to the primary sources!"

Bad Science shows the relevance of all our academic fussing about sources, by showing how journalists distort science stories.

  1. People with contrary opinions rarely fit in.
    Most of MY opinions are so off the wall that I have taken to referencing them at all times, and folks get all pissy when they discover that I am right and they are really wrong. People can still disrespect my opinion, and by extension me, but they have a harder time of it when I back it up.
    I just don't see the point of blogging or chiming in with the same opinion as the OP...then it just sounds like a band wagon. Trouble is, BS detecting has no positive end game. You always end up outside in the rain, looking in.
    Oh well. But here I must break with my own habit and actually agree with the poster. Bravo. Good call Steve.
