I went online to see what other news organizations were saying about this new way to make stem cell lines. Words like "breakthrough," "major advance" and "very significant research" were flying all over my computer screen from all the major newspapers, wire services and news outlets.
The media hype machine was running full throttle. But, why? The science involved is not going to lead to any sort of ethical breakthrough..
Stem cell breakthrough more hype than hope
