Fraudulent Cloning

So the great South Korean stem-cell breakthrough of therapeutic cloning turns out to have been a fraud, according to a close collaborator of the principal investigator, Hwang Woo-suk.

As I point out in my book, "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Science," the whole field of cloning has been dogged by fraud from the beginning. Likewise the decision of the National Institutes of Health to spend $100 million on a cancer genome project, announced this week, is sure to be unproductive, as I also say in my book. I predict that it will not yield any useful results beyond providing assured employment for genome statisticians and computer gnomes.

Politically correct science gets off almost scot free because journalists are not on the case. They take the view that they do not have the right to question scientists and they end up doing exactly what Woodward and Bernstein said they should avoid: they print government handouts.
