You know that study that was very much hyped by the left-wing media that purported to show that gay activists could change the minds of people on gay marriage just by a few minutes of subjecting them to lame slogans and hackneyed talking points about “equality” and such. (I am sure it was copy-pasted into the comments here multiple times.)
In what can only be described as a remarkable and swift series of events, one of the authors of a much-ballyhooed Science paper claiming that short conversations could change people’s minds on same-sex marriage is retracting it following revelations that the data were faked by his co-author.
The study received widespread media attention, including from This American Life, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Science Friday, Vox, and HuffingtonPost, as LaCour’s site notes.
The Left-Wing media are retracting their previous stories based on the study, the authors are going into Hillary mode (Questions from the press? No thank you.) But I am curious what happened to the thousands of dollars in grant money that supposedly went into a study that apparently faked all of its survey data.
