Albuquerque Eyewitness News Coverage of PBS Censorship Issue

Robert L. Crowther, II

Channel 4 Eyewitness News in Albuquerque, New Mexico is the latest media outlet to pick up on KNME’s decision to ban Unlocking the Mystery of Life that we first reported earlier this week.
They have a video clip of their live coverage of the story on Wed. night’s 10pm news on their website It is refreshing to see a major, if local, media outlet actually getting the story right, and focusing on the irrational decision to try and censor a science debate. The even give intelligent design its due as a scientific theory.
There is likely to be a media storm tomorrow when the story breaks in Albuquerque’s print world. It will be interesting to see if reporters at those papers will get their facts straight or not. I’m not holding my breath, as neither of the daily papers responded to my inquiries to the newsroom trying to find out which reporters are covering the story.
