Did New York Times report the whole story? You decide.

Here is the e-mail I sent to New York Times reporter Laurie Goodstein after she interviewed me last Thursday for her predictable hatchet-job on intelligent design in Sunday’s Times. Decide for yourself whether her story accurately reflected all of the information she was given:

Intelligent Design Might Be Meeting Its Maker? Ignorance on Display in the New York Times

Intelligent Design Might Be Meeting Its Maker? Ignorance on Display in the New York Times

NPR’s Deaf Ombudsman

Ira Flatow on Science Friday does not allow ID scientists on his program, only critics of ID. If he does allow a proponent of ID, it is not a scientist, and in those cases the one ID proponent is set upon by a stacked panel of several Darwinists.
