Disappointing Dishonesty

It turns out science journalist, Jonah Lehrer, had been fabricating quotes and lying about it when questioned. Lehrer, it’s clear from the disclaimer on all his New Yorker blog posts, has also been recycling his own material without alerting his publisher or readers. I’m very disappointed by all of this. I disagreed from time-to-time with Lehrer, but I enjoyed his work enough to link him in my blogroll [now removed].

Lazy dishonesty has ruined the career of a promising young talent. In response, Sam Harris is offering his ebook, Lying, free for a week.
