When will FoxNews give it a show -- endorsing Creationism?

Scientists have unveiled a 47-million-year-old fossilised skeleton of a monkey hailed as the missing link in human evolution.

The search for a direct connection between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom has taken 200 years - but it was presented to the world today at a special news conference in New York.

Now, I'm just guessing that the reporter in this story for Sky News (Rupert!) may be adding a bit of drama to the findings ("missing link in human evolution" -- drama major buddy?) , but there was still was something truly stunning and little reported.

It was found holding what appeared to be teabags.


Here's some actual analysis of what is, still, a major find from PZ Myers.
