Deltoid Versus Media

What scientists say and what journalists here are frequently two different things. Tim Lambert at Deltoid has decided to take the fight to the enemy by calling journalists out by name. For example, here he targets a sensationalist story by Jonathan Leake on how researchers have shown that Facebook causes students to do worse in school. The actual research was much more preliminary and equivocal.

Also, I had no idea that deltoid was a geometrical term. (I think of the muscle.)
