I don't believe it. The media around the world have yet again been played for suckers by an attention seeking activist "researcher."
And, completely predictably, this highly dubious and simplistic claim has been simply regurgitated without question or a moment's thought by the press and the television stations.
Alright, no surprise here really, but one does wish that just for once these people would actually do their jobs properly.
Thankfully, we have "new media" outfits like Spiked Online who aren't prepared to take any press release they receive on face value and aren't afraid to ask some inconvenient questions.
