Ben Goldacre sticks it to the Mail and Telegraph
Posted by Martin Poulter on 23 August 2009
I would normally put this in my brainy blog, but it’s well worth watching just for entertainment. Medical expert and “Bad Science” columnist/author Ben Goldacre appeared on Radio 4′ s satirical “The Now Show” to talk about swine flu, healthy lives, cancer and newspaper pseudoscience. The last time I saw Goldacre speak was at a meeting of the Royal Statistical Society, and it’s a tribute to the man that he fits in equally well with academic researchers and stand-up comedians.
