An April 11 CNSNews.com article by Patrick Goodenough bashed Sen. John Kerry for citing research which he said had used embryonic stem cells to "cure" a mouse -- but, Goodenough wrote, "the mouse wasn't cured, and the research he referred to fell far short of the scores of treatments already being carried out using non-controversial 'adult' stem cells." (As we've noted, that claim about adult stem cell treatments is highly misleading.)
In contrast, a June 7 CNS article by Katherine Poythress enthusiastically reported on "three different group studies" that "document the successful creation of stem cells without destroying human embryos." But you have to read farther down to learn that human cells were not involved; the research involved mice.
Interesting change in tone there -- mice were unreliable as a research subject potentially extrapolated to humans when they support the idea of embryonic stem cell research, but are directly applicable when supporting non-embryonic research (indeed, there's no evidence at this point that the procedure in question would work on humans).
