MSM Enabling Science Fraud
Posted on September 2, 2016
Researcher John Lott is widely quoted by the NRA and other gun nuts. He is also a discredited fraud with no academic credibility whatsoever. Nevertheless he still gets quoted in mainstream media. This illustrates the desperately felt need of the MSM to be “balanced,” which is say sell papers to or seduce webclicks from both sides of every issue. (Needless to say, Fox News feels no such need and gives John Lott a prime position as its go-to gun nut expert.) So we need to take down Lott’s reputation once again.
