Science and the Left
Lengthy but fun read in City Journal that looks at the differences between the Left and Right in regards science. He deals with confirmation bias and other such stuff that can sway scientific opinion:
"My liberal friends sometimes ask me why I don’t devote more of my science journalism to the sins of the Right. It’s fine to expose pseudoscience on the left, they say, but why aren’t you an equal-opportunity debunker? Why not write about conservatives’ threat to science?
My friends don’t like my answer: because there isn’t much to write about. Conservatives just don’t have that much impact on science."
