Sacramento Bee making more errors in stem cells

In an editorial on Jan. 25, the Sacramento Bee wrote:

Credit goes to John Simpson of the Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights, a Santa Monica non-profit. In July, Simpson and his group filed an official challenge to three WARF patents, with support from Jeanne Loring, a researcher at the Burnham Institute in La Jolla. They make a strong case that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office should never have issued the patents.

The Bee forgot to mention PubPat, which actually filed the request.

The Bee also asserts a "strong case" for something that isn't.

The Bee implies that credit for the WARF licensing announcement of Jan. 07 goes to Simpson/FTCR and the re-exam request. That's doubtful, too.
