A SHOCKER: Anti-war Soros funded Iraq study. Say it ain't so!
UPDATE: More thoughts here: "This is an academic scandal, insofar as these institutions have lent their brand equity to what is essentially a fraud on the public. Fortunately, they are all so well-established that they can afford for George Soros to dissipate a tiny bit of their reputation. But -- and this is important -- let us not hear complaints from any of these institutions about 'anti-intellectualism in American life.' Americans do not trust our pointy-headed institutions of higher learning in matters of public policy for very good reason."
ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader Art Fougner, M.D., emails:
The reputation of an outstanding medical journal ( The Lancet is more highly regarded than the New
England Journal of Medicine.) has been permanently sullied. The editors should be sacked. And they complain when a drug detail man buys lunch for a doctor's office. My God!
This goes beyond lunch.
