WAR ON SCIENCE: Muzzling of federal scientists widespread, survey suggests. “Twenty four per cent of respondents said they ‘sometimes’ or ‘often’ were asked to exclude or alter technical information in federal government documents for non-scientific reasons. Most often, the request came from their direct supervisors, followed by business or industry, other government departments, politically appointed staff and public interest advocates.”

Luckily, this is in Canada. I’m sure nothing like this could happen in our federal government.
