I found an interesting little tidbit:
All in all, the article is okay as far as I can tell. The writer, Jim Axlerod, didn’t write stuff that was obviously made up, and didn’t go out of his way to exaggerate claims. But, the tag line of the article from CBS’s main page:
“Discovered in the former Soviet republic of Georgia, a 1.8 million-year-old skull may be the missing link that ties all of humanity together”
is obviously NOT what the article is about.
Methinks that some editor in CBS News is not scientifically literate.
