    Thanks for posting, @Cheshire!

    Just wondered if you wanted to change the title a little - I read this as the NYT having got something wrong, or Rehmeyer & Tuller having got something wrong! Adding quotes and a "by" (in red) would clarify.

    This is excellent. We need this sort of exposure.. I'm sure this is just what the PACE PIs and Wessely School really don't want to see. Bad optics for them.

    Wow. This is really great, even though it is from a failing newspaper. At least they still provide some real news;) Print tomorrow.

    Wow wow wow. Congratulation to David and Julie.

    You are both heroes!

    Was hoping this story would make it to the NYT (where David Tuller used to write).

    The Pace trial author's intransigence and cover up of their epic fraud is furthering the Streisand effect . Great!! Keep digging Pace authors as your trial is going down as the biggest scientific fraud in recent times.

    Thank you Dr David Tuller and Julie Rehmeyer.!!

    Yet the definition of "failing" seems consistent - reporting facts that people in positions of power prefer to hide :rolleyes:.

    The editorial mentions the recent recovery critique paper by psychology researcher Dr Carolyn Wilshire, @Tom Kindlon, Alem Matthees (and me).

    Here's a summary of the key findings of the paper (MEAction blog)

    2017 is going to be "the year"! The snowball is getting close to the point where it is going to roll down the slope itself, and those trying to stop it will fail.

    Very well done to the authors!

    Well done also to Jacqueline Tam for her very sensitive artwork accompanying the article! The magnitude of the problem that is ME and the Liliputian role doctors have so far played in tackling it is well summed up in the size disparities of the figures in her image, which also succeeds in giving a quiet dignity to the notional patient.
