In the proud tradition of Andrew Wakefield

The opposite of Wakefield, I'd say: the researcher is repudiating the study, and can't get the journal to publish his retraction.

Good point, but I fear it will resemble Wakefield in having a lot of suckers continuing to believe.

What is boggling me is the casual remark about how Masters and Johnson wrote a book about curing gayness that was entirely fabricated. What in the world was wrong with them?

This is different. In this case, the researcher genuinely thought he was publishing actual research, then, when he found out differently, repudiated it. This is error, not fraud.
