Viewpoint: Here’s how the New York Times botched an op-ed about placebos Jerry Coyne | Why Evolution is True | July 12, 2018 Steve Petrow’s stuffed rabbit. Image credit: New York Times As part of the continuing decline of the New York Times, we have this new op-ed by Steve Petrow, a writer from North Carolina who, the paper says, “is a regular contributor to Well” (the paper’s health column). But this is more about woo than about health. Petrow’s point is apparently twofold: curative “placebo” effects can result from the use of talismans, amulets, or comforting objects like plush rabbit toys. Further, he says, these objects can soothe one and even make one optimistic. I’m prepared to accept the second claim but not fully the first. Petrow was apparently cured of testicular cancer when, 34 years ago, he was diagnosed and also given a “velvety rabbit with big floppy ears” named “Fairy God Bunny”. He brought the rabbit to all his appointments and, sure enough, has been cancer-free for decades. Of course, testicular cancer is one of the most curable forms of the disease, and I doubt that a fluffy bunny could have helped him with mesothelioma or pancreatic cancer. The downside of the Times article is that it doesn’t point out the many failed experiments in which even placebo effects were not useful, and it implies that there is “magic”, which is not really what is going on here.

“Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate,” the company said. That leaves Trump free to grab his phone at all hours to shove and to smear and to spew falsehoods. As Michiko Kakutani writes in her new book, “ The Death of Truth ”: “Trump, of course, is a troll — both by temperament and by habit. His tweets and offhand taunts are the very essence of trolling — the lies, the scorn, the invective, the trash talk, and the rabid non sequiturs of an angry, aggrieved, isolated, and deeply self-absorbed adolescent who lives in a self-constructed bubble and gets the attention he craves from bashing his enemies and trailing clouds of outrage and dismay in his path.” We have a president who is an addict running a country overflowing with opioid and social media addicts. (In an interview with The Times a few days ago, our tech reporter Nellie Bowles said she dealt with her smartphone addiction by graying out her screen, noting, “These phones are designed to look and work like slot machines — hit us with bright colors and little pings to activate and please,” and “we all have to figure out little hooks to pull back into the physical world.”) Art Markman, a psychology professor at the University of Texas at Austin who has lamented the extraordinarily aggressive online comments at media outlets, hopes people will resume a sense of decorum when they realize “there’s very little long-term profit from a viral tweet.” “We don’t have to cater to those meanspirited instincts,” he said. “We can be better than that.” But I don’t think Trump can. He figured out how to dominate Twitter, not with the cool-kid arch style of making fun of someone, but by being school-yard-bully mean. His tweets propel the story on cable news and shape the narrative for reporters — who are addicted to the First Addict. For Trump, who is also an attention addict, that is about as holistic as it’s going to get. I invite you to follow me on Twitter ( @MaureenDowd ) and join me on Facebook .

Papa John’s founder Schnatter resigns over N-word use These are external links and will open in a new window Papa John’s founder John Schnatter has stepped down as chairman of the company’s board after apologising for using the N-word in a conference call. The pizza chain founder used the racial slur in a media training session in May. Mr Schnatter quit as chief executive last year after criticising the NFL over players’ national anthem protests. In a statement on Wednesday, the company said it condemned “racism and any insensitive language”. It later said it had accepted Mr Schnatter’s resignation and that a new chairman would be appointed in the coming weeks. Papa John’s is the world’s third-largest pizza chain, with nearly 4,900 outlets worldwide. The incident happened during a conference call in May between executives at Papa John’s and a marketing agency called Laundry Service. According to Forbes , the call involved a role-playing exercise that was supposed to give Mr Schnatter experience in dealing with difficult issues. When discussing how he would distance himself from racist groups, Mr Schnatter said that Colonel Sanders, the founder of KFC, had never faced criticism for using the N-word, Forbes reported. Image caption Mr Schnatter appears as part of Papa John’s branding Trump donor Mr Schnatter stepped down as chief executive of the company in 2017 after he criticised the National Football League (NFL) for not containing national anthem protests at American football games, which he said were hurting his firm’s sales. Players had been protesting against the treatment of black people in the US by kneeling during the national anthem.
