Register in Tech Central Station

The lame panicing nanny article on the "obesity crisis" in Iowa in yesterday's Register got noticed by Sandy Szwarc at TCS.
Just like other media, the Register simply didn't report facts which were inconvenient:

• Evidence shows that as we've been getting heavier for generations, our health and longevity keep improving
• Virtually all weight loss "treatments" fail to work long-term
• Simply living active lives makes body weights a nonissue
Not report facts that are inconvenient...? Looks like Ms. Szwarc has the Register's number. Oh... I really love the last paragraph.

Go read the whole enchilada.
