An afterthought.  Reuters staff, who transformed a positive press release into the more newsworthy negative, will shortly similarly  revisit the wisdom of  physicians, physicists, geographers, and chemists, etc of 250 years ago and make news out of the percentage of their work that is incorrect, no longer useful, or otherwise unusable today. Yeah right.
