Gina Kolata had her article in the Times – subject of my blog earlier today (below).

Later, the American Cancer Society issued this news release (Is it a retraction? Is it a correction? Is it ‘we wish we hadn’t said that to the NYT?’ Is it “Gina Kolata got it wrong?’ What is it?).

I think it’s Gina Kolata got it wrong. She has shown an inclination to hype and misquote others. Kolata is not to be trusted with her reporting.
