Celeste Biever Not the Only New Scientist Writer to Engage in Impersonation

It turns out that Celeste Biever isn't the only writer from New Scientist magazine to engage in impersonation. Last year, Bill Dembski reported on how he was contacted by the New Scientist's Bob Holmes, who assured him:

It seems to me the media coverage of intelligent design has mostly failed to present your case on scientific grounds, and I'd like to remedy that.

Of course, Mr. Holmes had no intention of covering the scientific case for design, and his resultant article was little more than your standard anti-ID hack job. So it appears that New Scientist's reporters are quite used to misrepresenting themselves with the people they interview, especially if the interviewees happen to be proponents of ID.
