What will the media do with this?

Wesley Smith writes that Carlos Lima has published his research on helping paralyzed patients in the peer-reviewed Journal of Spinal Cord Medicine. Though his treatment is no cure to paralysis, improving the "motor scores" and lives of paralyzed individuals is an important accomplishment. Unfortunately, I think someone would be foolish to take Wesley's bet.
"I hope I am wrong, but I will bet that the mainstream media ignores the story. They will be too busy reporting on rats with improved mobility from embryonic stem cells."
