As reported by Think Progress, Karl Rove –”told the Denver Post that ‘recent studies’ show researchers ‘have far more promise from adult stem cells than from embryonic stem cells.’” This provoked the people at Think Progress to do some digging. Here’s what they found:
The Chicago Tribune contacted a dozen top stem cell experts about Rove’s claim. They all said it was inaccurate. So who wrote the “studies” that Rove was referring to?
White House spokesman Ken Lisaius on Tuesday could not provide the name of a stem cell researcher who shares Rove’s views on the superior promise of adult stem cells.
The White House knows that it just can’t win a fair fight, it seems. At the risk of sounding petty or obsessed or trite, has anyone been meticuously documenting each of the White House lies and categorized them by topic? Not that 29% of this country’s voters would ever care.
