Scientific Studies

John Oliver humorously explains why media outlets so often report untrue or incomplete information as science. An unfortunate truism of science is that all of the rewards are for discovery - there are no prizes for fact checking.

The lack of fact checking and inability of news media, to distinguish between serious studies and bs studies, leads to headlines that are more attention grabbing than factual.

But wait where will I get all my interesting bs facts from - don't worry Last Week Tonight has you covered. Welcome to the Todd talks - where science is a lot less complex - and has the intellectual rigor of morning news shows.
