+ - Scientific American censors blog post for not being scientific enough 2

Submitted by rogue-girl
rogue-girl (2837165) writes "The popular science magazine 'Scientific American' is getting hard time after it removed a blog post by contributor DNLee, blogging at Urban Scientist. DNLee's post discussed integrity in science and misconduct from science communicators. DNLee has been approached by BiologyOnline staff Ofek who invited her to contribute. When DNLee asked for compensation details and learned she'd be writing for free, she kindly turned down the offer. In response, Ofek called her a "whore". DNLee wrote a post on her Scientific American blog, but the post was removed. It also appears that Biology Online is SciAm's partner, but SciAm's editor in chief Mariette di Christina claimed the partnership has nothing to do with the removal, but pulling it down is due to insufficient scientific content. DNLee's original post has been reposted here, and a Storify with (outraged) reactions is also available."
