Protesting CNN science cuts

The National Association of Science Writers, to which I belong, joined three other science journalism organizations in an unprecedented protest to CNN concerning the cable titan's intent to cut its science unit entirely. I suppose this could be seen as self-serving, but taking science journalism at an important news network out of the hands of people like Miles O'Brien and putting it in the hands of people who also do cute stories about kittens is a disgusting abdication of responsibility (notice CNN didn't cut its entertainment "news" people).
