Musing: A Rough Guide to Bad Science

This will be of principal interest to my statistics students (young and old!) but this is a nice summary of some of the poor ways science and scientific findings are reported in the news.  Number 4 should look very familiar, as should number 7!

My general recommendation about reading these news articles is, when in doubt, go read the source.  Don’t rely on other people to do your thinking for you.  Go and seek out the information you need and make your own conclusions!
