Media incorrectly connects UH research to parallel universe theory

Media incorrectly connects UH research to parallel universe theory
Science Daily
Media outlets from around the world used research out of the University of Hawai?i at Manoa to promote a theory about parallel universes. The Media incorrectly connects UH research to parallel universe theorys caught the attention of many but the problem is that the UH research and NASA, the sponsor of that research, had nothing to do with the theory.

...
They just make shit up. Always. No matter what the subject.

It's tabloids all the way down.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Hmm, they say "the media" but the examples given seem to tend toward the tabloids. Not the New York Times, for example.
That did not stop the Daily Star, an United Kingdom based newspaper, from this story on May 17, "NASA scientists detect parallel universe 'next to ours' where time runs backwards" that cited the UH research. The New York Post, the Thrillist and other media outlets followed with similar articles, that also cited the UH based research.

The main lie of the media isn't political in a direct partisan sense.

It's the implication that they know what is going on.

Alternately, no pun intended, they discovered their ass with both hands. :)
