67% of studies were retracted because of misconduct! And 43% is because of fraud! We can't even believe scientists anymore! The study of science papers found that those retractions for fraud have increased 10-fold since 1975. We're cheating a hell of a lot more. So yeah, even if something is backed by SCIENCE, it doesn't always mean it's real.
But no mention of how many studies were retracted, the percentage of retracted vs. non-retracted studies, what journals the studies in question appeared in, or that the studies in question were retracted reflects the strength of peer review. "We can't even believe scientists anymore!" Really? Fuck Gawker, and fuck you for linking that.

If the guy behind a game that Joystiq called "glorified fan fiction" about a character named "Starkiller" is capable of producing a "grounded and gritty fiction", I'll be quite surprised.
