Intellectual dishonesty: scandal or fraud?

Scientific scandal

Stephen Fleischfresser doesn’t use the term ‘scientific fraud,’ but some of this work appears at least intellectually dishonest. So what I want to know is, who the hell, besides the tobacco industry, cited these assholes, “one of the most influential and heavily cited psychologists of all time, the oft controversial Hans Eysenck” and his partner in crime, Ronald Grossath-Maticek?[1] Because if people are actually relying on this bullshit, the question that follows is, how much damage has been done to the body of knowledge? How much?
