Episode 45: The ACLU Sues Over Cake, NY Times Reports On Bias, and Stem Cells From Skin
Would you support a baker who refused to bake a cake with a Swastika on it celebrating a pair of loving neo-Nazis who were getting married? Would the ACLU come down on the side of the baker, or the couple? Now, listen as I make one small change to the situation and see if all of a sudden, things change drastically.
Would you believe that there is media bias in how the same-sex marriage issue is portrayed and reported? Well, a Pew Research study proves it, and the NY Times reports it as actual news. (Which it is, but it may really be news to NY Times readers.)
George W. Bush, far from being the anti-science neanderthal he was portrayed as, believed science could research its way out of the ethical dilemma of using already-frozen embryonic cells as a source for stem cells. Now we’re producing embryonic cells from skin.
