  •  Yup. This is a press release, not a study (0+ / 0-)

    and reveals the researcher's preset bias. kinda like trusting "data" from the Drug Czar's office.

      to back up your repeated impugning of the professor's professionalism?  The fact that the press release -- undoubtedly written by someone far removed from the actual study -- contains little detail about the study says absolutely nothing about what the researcher may or may not be willing to with the data.

      I don't care about your farm or mafia! Oh wait -- wrong forum.

      The fact that the University issued a press release touting the results of a timely study says absolutely nothing about the "preset bias" of the researcher who conducted it. That is patently ridiculous.

        yet we're expected to demonize based on a 2nd hand release written by someone weth their own biases on display.
