WISE Science Communication- Calling BS

The best laid plans can go awry with poorly thought through conclusions drawn from otherwise accurate data. Learn to identify misleading results (deliberate or accidental) in research with an exercise from the famous University of Washington course Calling Bullshit.

We'll look at an example from science media, from a researcher, and from an NIH report, each of which have serious but easy to miss errors but still got published. Just what is wrong with the papers? How did the editors neglect to find the issue with their conclusions? Why did the scientist who wrote up the results not see their own error? (spoiler alert- the answer to all these questions is usually bias or outright discrimination)
