More Fraud In Academia

Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practise to deceive . . .

In 1990, Rutgers Professor Philip Shuchman charged Elizabeth Warren, along with Teresa A. Sullivan (above), the President of University of Virginia who resigned unexpectedly yesterday, and Jay Westbrook, her two co-authors of the 1989 book, As We Forgive Our Debtors: Bankruptcy and Consumer Credit in America, with “scientific misconduct.” Within a few months, Warren’s friends and former colleagues at the University of Texas quickly completed an error-filled investigation.

Personally, I think this and the Flat-Earthers (man-made global warming believers) scandal is just the tip of the iceberg. More here. What's the take away? Don't trust academia.
