Surely you are not also going to claim that because a guy lie and cheated, and was caught by a major university, and they actually did something about it, that this is a great badge of honor for the scientific community are you? The Catholic church also punished a few priests you know?
(1) Did the scientific community spend hundreds of millions of dollars to cover these up like the catholic church?
(2) His own students turned him in. Can you say the same about those priests and the catholic church?
(3) What about all those miracle healers like Peter Popoff?
That's right, it took a gay atheist skeptic to expose this fraud instead of you hollier than thou religionists. How do you explain that?
(4) This is a classic example of science's self-correcting nature. It is impossible for any researcher to commit fraud without somebody blowing the whistle. In this case, his own students did before any other researchers tried to replicate his experiments. And even if they hadn't, eventually people who couldn't replicate the results of his experiments would have called him on it.
Can the same thing be said about the faith healers?
