Incomplete Nature gun article correction puts agenda over truth

“The News Feature ‘The gun fighter’ wrongly implied that blogger David Codrea had ‘outed’ gun researcher Garen Wintemute,” a correction issued in the June issue of the science journal Nature admitted. “Wintemute had in fact publicized his own work before Codrea’s 2007 blog post.”

Following in the agenda-driven footsteps of political media, Nature, ostensibly a fact-driven and unbiased scientific journal, has jumped on the “gun control” bandwagon, at least that part of it bemoaning a lack of federally-funded “gun violence” studies, with a profile on anti-gun researcher Dr. Garen Wintemute by correspondent Meredith Wadman in its April issue. That article, astonishingly, made reference to a post on this correspondent’s blog from over six years ago.


This quote should be given more publicity, as it shows the political nature, with demonstrated pre-approved "results" of the CDC "research".

“Absent from Wadman’s article is acknowledgment of the outrageous bias that caused Congress to pull funding for predetermined outcome ‘studies’ in the first place, after ‘Dr. Mark Rosenberg, Director of the CDC's National Center for Injury Control and Prevention (NCIPC) told The Washington Post: “We need to revolutionize the way we look at guns, like what we did with cigarettes. Now it [sic] is dirty, deadly, and banned,”’" the letter concluded.
