On the BBC News website as I write there is a report that tells us how ‘the retrieval of high quality DNA from a 400,000-year-old human has opened up a new frontier in the study of our ancient ancestors’.
So is that the BBC’s lead story? What do you think? No, it’s that ‘Nigella Lawson admits taking cocaine’. Wow. Amazing.
Even the Guardian and the Independent have the story in second place. Tragic.
