A while back, we saluted Bruce Baker of Rutgers University as an extraordinary truth teller and demolisher of tall tales disguised as “research”

In this post, he reveals his pet peeve:

“Perhaps more than anything else, I hate it when pundits – who often have little clue what they are talking about to begin with, toss around big numbers with lots of zeros… or “illions” attached in order to make their ideological point.”

See the tweet he refers to.
