Victories For Skeptics

Sometimes I love Twitter -- like a few days ago, when notorious anti-vaccine hype artist and "The View" co-host Jenny McCarthy asked her followers, "What is the most important personality trait you look for in a mate?" The Daily Beast took note of some of the responses the Twitterverse posted in response:
While we're kicking anti-science liars, let's not forget Kevin Trudeau, who conned people out of millions of dollars with infomercials and books like "The Weight Loss Cure 'They' Don't Want You To Know About." Despite being fined $37 million by the FTC, he has continued to live a lavish lifestyle without paying a penny -- but tomorrow, he's going to be sentenced by a federal judge for criminal contempt, and will likely get 10 years in prison.

Trudeau was sentenced to a decade behind bars today. Sharon Hill has details.
