Testing and Exposing Fake Science Articles

If what is going on with “journalism” and the need to prop up political ideologue and justify “results” for those funding fake science, is the norm, what’s to be said about the destruction of real academia and scientific research? Is this also a planned event?

At JunkScience, there’s an article that exposes where one man deliberately wrote a fake article. It was published, evidently without scrutiny, all to prove a point.

Sokal’s hoax served a public purpose, to attract attention to what Sokal saw as a decline of standards of rigor in the academic community, and for that reason it was unmasked immediately by the author himself.
