    This one’s for the Lancet editorial board: A trolley problem for our times (involving a plate of delicious cookies and a steaming pile of poop)


    Criticism of the Lancet editorial board over the publication of a probably problematic hydroxychloroquine study.

    p.s. this post is written in a ironic/satirical style--it took my brain a couple of minutes to sort it out--he is criticising Richard Horton, the Lancet Editor for not following his own advice that he published in 2015.

    Some interesting commentary follows. People who are involved in scientific inquiry questioning the motives of Elsevier etc regarding quality vs money.

    Sadly, things are set up such that, in order to survive, one must continually be slave to profit first even when the product is this important.

    12 years for the Wakefield paper.

    9 years ongoing for PACE.

    The Lancet appears to be the New York Times of medical journals, a reputation unearned for an organization pathologically unable to rise to the moment.

    Governments and WHO changed Covid-19 policy based on suspect data from tiny US company
    Surgisphere, whose employees appear to include a sci-fi writer and adult content model, provided database behind Lancet and New England Journal of Medicine hydroxychloroquine studies

    Good to see the authors doing the right thing; also means the Lancet get off scott free.

    Moved from the Covid biology thread

    The Lancet has made one of the biggest retractions in modern history. How could this happen?

    Covid-19 studies based on flawed Surgisphere data force medical journals to review processes
