The truth is out there

Lisa: The Union of Concerned Scientists have run a Science Idol cartoon competition, inviting entries to highlight the problems arising when government interference in science, censoring scientists, suppressing findings or altering scientific reports.  The winning entry by Jesse Springer is shown below.  To see all the winning entries, go here. 

Jesse Springers winning entry in the Science Idol competition

While this problem has been highlighted in the U.S., where over 10,000 scientists have signed a Statement on Scientific Integrity, I wonder how much of a problem, if it is at all, this is in Australia.  I would love to know what you think!
