MIT prof. fired for lying

"MIT professor sacked for fabricating data" starts off with:
A high-flying researcher has been fired from the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston for fabricating data. A New Scientist investigation can, however, reveal that serious doubts are also being expressed over the accuracy of data published by the same researcher much earlier in his career.
Sad how people in the "higher institutions" seem to belive they are above it all [I didn't think about the pun when I first wrote it down, but I'll leave it as is].
