Grauniad non-science

I love the Grauniad.

I have read either the main paper or the Weekly consistently (albeit sometimes with a hiatus requiring a major effort to catch up on it) for over 25 years.

But, their science reporting sucks. And I don't just say that because their article on my 2003 press release hinged on an interview with someone who hadn't read the paper and didn't know what it was about - at least they had tried to do some original reporting rather than just paste'n'cut the press release or AP story (well, ok, the bulk of the article is press paste'n'cut - but they did add some original content, which puts them in the top 3% of all news stories on the issue).

And now their science news blog sucks too.

Come on, if you're going to do it, then do it.
