52. LOL- citing the Post for science "reporting" is like

citing O'Reilly in a geography quiz.

There's clearly something wrong at that paper- I've read no less than two articles in the past 6 months where the "reporters" didn't do any critical analysis at all and simply let people pull facts out of their ass. I just had to laugh.

(I'm sure if I bothered to read that paper, I could could find a dozen more like them).

A bit of advice- NEVER take anything you read in the Post at face value- and always get confirmation from a credible independent source. These guys specialize in distortion for political purposes (although what the political purpose of their mountain lion article was back in December- I can't say. Maybe to lend credence to the black helicopter type? Dunno. It too absurd).
