Associated Press Suppresses Facts on Louisiana Evolution Hearing

The Associated Press has an article on Louisiana's Academic Freedom bill which quotes a Darwinist professor at Louisiana State University asserting that "biological evolution really is not scientifically controversial." The article did observe that biologist Caroline Crocker testified in favor of the bill, but left out the fact that multiple other scientists (including professional biologists) also testified that there are scientific problems with evolution. As I recount here, three professional biologists and one chemist, all with Ph.D.'s, testified about scientific problems with Darwinian evolution before Louisiana's House Education Committee on Wednesday. But the Associated Press chose not to report that fact, instead deciding to serve as a checkpoint to prevent its readers from learning about scientists who doubt Darwin.
