Chatnannies: still missing

Ray Girvan surveys the on-going Chatnannies story, including links to a New Scientist piece and the compendious history at Waxy.org. It's nice to see that the New Scientist editors are making up for their originally credulous story on this topic, in contrast to the BBC, who just silently removed their story from their web site, and (as far as I know) still haven't retracted their much-ridiculed mutant frog and telepathic parrot pieces, much less apologized. As I asked earlier, isn't it time for the BBC to get an ombudsman?
