Too often, research starts with a desire to validate an opinion already held by the research sponsors and conducted with the goal of justifying a predetermined and desired outcome. It is a conclusion looking for a reason to exist. It is a fools search for information that supports the viewpoint of those sponsoring the research concluding with nothing of particular value to anyone other than the sponsors. Honest research starts with no presumed bias to a particular outcome. It simply follows the information wherever it leads, whether or not it supports the researcher’s views.
