Ugh, Al.com, can you hire a journalist? Just one?

Al.com ran a story today about Stephen Hawking today. In a move that can only be viewed in Al.com’s tradition of comment baiting, some hack named Lee Roop pieced together a “story” from various sources. He even had the gall to give the thing a Pasadena, California byline. I mean, whatever, they could have just run the AP story and called it a day. They also could have abstained from editorializing…but, that wouldn’t be Al.com’s way, would it?

This sentence in particular is just downright offensive:

Hawking said the so-called M-Theory best expresses what he has observed about the universe.

Emphasis mine. In no source that this guy took all his information from is the theory referred to as the “so-called” theory. Ugh, it’s just a theory dood.
