Obama to reverse embryonic stem cell ban

Again, the stem cell "ban". There is no friggin' "ban". While I am glad that CNN did report that Bush's policy limited federal dollars to embryonic stem cell research, I wish they had chosen not to use the confusing headline. There are enough of the confused out there already.

The article also says that the administration is "planning a Monday event at the White House in which Obama will overturn the executive order signed by President George W. Bush in August 2001".

And another thing I noticed. Here's the top story under the 'Don't Miss' section: "Man appears free of HIV after stem cell transplant". The story repeatedly uses the word 'donor' but doesn't actually say that the patient was treated with adult stem cells.

Ignorance is spreading like a disease. Thanks, CNN.
