I am not going to link this, because frankly, the NYT isn’t worth reading any more. But today’s letters to the editor section has 5 missives on the embryonic stem cell non breakthrough, all but one critical, of course, of President Bush.

Every letter is premised on Advanced Cell Technology having successfully derived ES cells from a single cell without harming the embryo–when that never happened! What are we to do when the most important newspaper in the United States has become so corrupted by political agendas that it refuses–simply refuses–to report stories accurately and correct the record when it has been wrong?
