The amount of evidence demonstrating that most published empirical studies are crap seems to be increasing. See, for example, this article from the Economist.

This is a great piece on how a student debunked a psychology study by some big guns in his field. Title: Nick Brown Smelled Bull. Funny, I smell that a lot when I read the higher ed journals.
