Fractal Fumento

Steve Reuland provides useful context for Michael Fumento’s recent discussion of the liberalization of science. Reuland does by actually reading the study Fumento discusses, and finding (and this is not surprising) that it does not say what Fumento claims it says.

The irony here is that Fumento accuses the study’s authors of slicing out data to make a political point. And then Fumento, with breathtaking audacity, commits the precise same sin.

This is not the first time. (Hat tip Tim Lambert for the fractal joke and the link.)

  1. John, if contrascientists didn’t cherry-pick and misstate what papers said, how would they be able to make their point?
