Jeffrey Beall just got a major profile (along with Fiona Godlee of BMJ and Ivan Oransky of Retraction Watch) on the CBC's National news broadcast. The are the science "Fraud Squad."

Oransky and Godlee should be horrified to be listed with him.
Fascinating. I wonder what it will take.
I've pretty much given up. Too many librarians continue to support Beall, and Beall's Bros think he's too lenient. And other than John and one or two others, nobody much points to other evidence like mine. (Poynder has never approached me, just as one example.) (Meg: partly a despairing reply to your question. Of course, the real Crusades weren't all that wonderful either...)
I've tweeted at The National and two of their journalists (hopefully not too ragey) so we'll see if they respond in any way. I'm not hopeful.
Even non=caped crusaders are more enticing to most journalists than folks telling complex stories.
