times.jpgThe Times newspaper’s most prominent environmental story today is called “Why rap has become the music of choice for city high-flyers”.

The third sentence is “the study of great tits reveals that not only are they more raucous than their country cousins but will experiment with new sounds and arrangements.”

The story is about how bird calls differ in country and urban areas… of course.

I used to denigrate the the Adelaide Advertiser for its sexing up of science for publication.

But I take it back. Stories in the UK are much worse. I haven’t even read a copy of the Sun yet, Murdoch’s infamous London tabloid.
