Having posted on this more than a month earlier I was surprised that it suddenly got reported.
Then I picked up a copy New Scientist and saw that they ran the story in their 20 November issue. Way to go legacy media. That’ll save you.
The media have to add something. This can be in the form of timeliness or meaningful analysis. Otherwise with the growth of the internet they will not keep eyeballs, which in turn leads to less advertising dollars.
Personally I think my analysis did a better job. I simply placed the findings into an appropriate context, by pointing out that most published research findings are false. Have a look at the post and see what you think.
