ANOTHER ONE

VIA Breitbart, we have an AP report on fraudulent research:

“Cancer Researcher Admits to Faking Data”

http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/01/14/D8F4QHA8D.html

This time it’s a Norwegian “scientist” hosing the Brit Journal Lancet…

Apparently, he invented his study data out of nothing… I wonder if he was a Journalism major who couldn’t get a job at the Times…

Seriously, something I do wonder. Are we seeing more of this because more people are getting into research for the wrong reasons? Like money or fame? There is only one reason to get into research: The pure love of discovery. I think the only thing this fellow discovered was his/her own moral weakness.
