For the past couple weeks, I’ve been blogging about the problems …
Carl Zimmer discusses some of the continuing misrepresentations of both George Will and his editorial supervisors. It sure must be a great job where you can be almost 100% misleading on some facts, or just plain wrong on others, and then be allowed to do it all over again, with no fear of being canned.
On every job I ever worked at, if I had continually misrepresented the data as often as Will has I would have been fired. Liars are not often tolerated in science.
Not so for people in journalism, apparently.
