The ever-reliable Ben Goldacre has a nasty piece (in yesterday's Guardian) about, well, the moronic media: From the mouths of morons in the media. It's veddy, veddy good.
I was watching Countdown on Friday, with Rachel M subbing for Keith Olbermann. She interviewed the two Georgia hikers who claimed to have the body of a Bigfoot. Check out the video (below); the guy on the left looks like he can hardly keep from cracking up. Rachel also has a rough time keeping her dubiousness off of that sleeve of hers.
Countdown video. [Luddites, click on the pretty red words.]
On Saturday, however, MSNBC reported that two genetic samples taken from the alleged Bigfoot proved to be "from a human" in one case and "from an opossum" in the other.
Too bad. Like most skeptics, I want to believe!
