Several major media outlets were forced to retract stories after a study concerning Americans’ views on same-sex marriage was shown to be a fraud.
Donald Green, a political science professor at Columbia University, and Michael LaCour, a graduate student at UCLA, published a study in the Science journal late last year entitled When Contact Changes Minds: An Experiment on Transmission of Support for Gay Equality.
The premise of the study was that voters’ views on same-sex marriage could be changed rapidly with the use of canvassers going door-to-door.
