This is a news website article about a scientific paper

by Stephanie Chasteen on October 22, 2010

Want to get meta?  In the spirit of Moser’s This is the Title of This Story, Which is Found Several Times In the Story Itself (if you don’t know that one, go read it NOW) — Martin Robbins (The Guardian) has truly outdone himself by poking fun at what passes for science news reporting on so many websites nowadays.

“Basically, this is a brief soundbite,” the scientist will say, from a department and university that I will give brief credit to. “The existing science is a bit dodgy, whereas my conclusion seems bang on,” she or he will continue.

Read the whole article here.  Just do it.  You have to.  It’s great.
