How Bad Science Becomes Government Policy

When scientific journals publish new research, an opportunity is created for independent researchers to reproduce a study’s results. David Randall, director of research for the National Association of Scholars, joins us to talk about why many studies are filled with flaws – making them unable to be repeated – and about how that bad science is making its way into government policy. His op-ed “How Bad is the Government’s Science?” appears in The Wall Street Journal.
