This is the 6th installment, in what has become a regular series. One criticism I have gotten on this series is “how are you different from Retraction Watch”? Fair question. The main difference is that RW skews their content heavily towards science/STEM, whereas I mostly ignore STEM in favor of social sciences, with a particular emphasis on economics. So while I do sprinkle in a STEM scandals, sometimes, perhaps a more apt name for this series would be “33 social science scandals” — also, not everything I cover is a “scandal”, per se, sometimes I just blog about random stories, so an even better name for this series might be “33 social science stories”.
Probably those political scientists didn't want to be surrounded by human feces in LA and holding the line with the workers was a great excuse
