Huffington Post’s War on Medical Science
Here’s an excellent post by David Gorski at Science-Based Medicine, taking an in-depth look at The Huffington Post’s War on Medical Science.
And the picture is not pretty.
But I’d also point out that in addition to the anti-science quackery that runs rampant at HuffPo, there’s been a long-running strain of extreme leftism, outright hate speech, and antisemitism — and it’s very obviously tolerated by the administrators, who rarely do anything to clean up the hateful comments. It’s a common occurrence, when a GOP politician is in medical trouble, for hundreds of vile comments to appear at HuffPo wishing horrible, painful deaths upon them. So common, in fact, that the administrators have learned to simply shut off comments on any thread involving these subjects, to avoid bad publicity.
