← Ardi proves Darwin wrong!!

Steven Mading's Avatar Jump to comment 13 by Steven Mading

I've heard that one common complaint about Al-Jazeera is that they present a false face to westerners by making sure that the English language version of their content is kept much more balanced and reasonable than the Arabic language version. Being someone who does not know Arabic, I can't verify this claim. Is this article a typical instance of this trend, or is there no trend and this article is an exception?

PZ Myers on Pharyngula predicted exactly this media reaction to the Ardi discovery, by the way. The discovery of Ardi, that reveals more of the evolved history of humans, will be deliberately misrepresented by the media to portray the discovery as being a disproof of evolution.
