The Detroit Free Press strikes again

As I've mentioned before Detroit Free Press reporter Megha Satyanarayana is one of those reporters who doesn't even appear to be in the slightest bit interested in attempting to shade her biases. From the first sentence in her story on embryonic stem cell research in Michigan:
At Wayne State University, Carol Brenner and her Tech Town colleagues know that Monday's lifting of federal restrictions on stem cell research means what once was trash could lead to a treasure trove of treatments.

By "trash" Satyanarayana means "human embryos."

If you want more evidence that Satyanarayana isn't the type of reporter who bothers to check facts, take a look out the side bar which has this statement.
There are no federal and state laws prohibiting human cloning, but researchers say they aren't interested in the practice.

Actually, Michigan has had a law which bans human cloning for more than 10 years and there are plenty of researchers in America who are interested in human cloning.
