Gell-Mann amnesia effect - Wikipedia
"You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray's case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the "wet streets cause rain" stories. Paper's full of them. In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know."

Scientific Autonomy, Public Accountability, and the Rise of “Peer Review” in the Cold War United States | Isis: Vol 109, No 3
In the 1970s, in the wake of a series of attacks on scientific funding, American scientists faced a dilemma: there was increasing pressure for science to be accountable to those who funded it, but scientists wanted to ensure their continuing influence over funding decisions. Scientists and their supporters cast expert refereeing—or “peer review,” as it was increasingly called—as the crucial process that ensured the credibility of science as a whole.

Facebook is rating the trustworthiness of its users on a scale from zero to one - The Washington Post
But how these new credibility systems work is highly opaque, and the companies are wary of discussing them, in part because doing so might invite further gaming -- a predicament that the firms increasingly find themselves in as they weigh calls for more transparency around their decision-making.

Create Successful Sales Value
The first is to confuse features with benefits. Features are functionalities. Benefits are what those functionalities could do for the user. For example, when Steve Jobs first launched the iPod, he told the audience that it has a 20-minute skip protection feature. That was the feature or functionality. He then proceeded to tell them the “so what”, which means that they can use it for cycling, hiking and jogging and it won’t miss a beat. This was the benefit.
