I got up early this morning, checked the New York Times, LA Times, USA Today, and other papers to see whether they had reported the big news that scientists had created a primordial artificial liver using umbilical cord blood stem cells. As expected, nothing: The news blockade was in place. After all, if it isn’t an embryonic stem cell research, it isn’t worth reporting since that is where the “best hope” is to be found. I mean, Michael J. Fox tells us so, right?
So, I wrote this piece and the good people over at the Daily Standard were kind enough to post it immediately. Check it out and break through the stem cell news blockade!
