Blame TV…

Howard Kurtz says it’s TV’s fault that the news media paid attention to the baseless Raelian cloning claims:

Once the Raelians were on TV, lots of folks started buzzing about their claim. At that point, the media have some responsibility to shed light on the subject — such as the fact that five successful pregnancies in 10 attempts (as the group claims) is the longest of long shots, based on past animal attempts.

Nice try.
