Forbes reporter Seema Singh shows bias and ignorance on stem cells

Media bias? What media bias? Here's Forbes reporter Seema Singh completely editorializing (and doing so poorly) in the first sentence of a story about stem cells.
A decade after George Bush set the clock back for stem cell research, the science is showing signs of regeneration.

Nowhere in the story is President Bush's stem cell policy described or is any evidence put forward that Bush's decision to limit U.S. federal funding of human embryonic stem cell research to already created lines "set the clock back."

Is there no editor at Forbes India?

That's okay because that kind of writing gets you a job teaching journalism.

  1. I saw that too. I am about fed up with the spin that Bush stopped stem cell research. I kinda wish he wasn't the first to fund embryonic stem cell research. At least then what everyone says about him would be somewhat true.
