I'm doing an assignment in my science class on how news articles can be wrong and use information in the wrong way to push a certain agenda. Basically I'm looking for an article that projects a certain idea and tries to sound all "science-y" but is complete crap. I knoooow there have got to be a TON of articles like this on reptile. I need them to be somewhat recent. I was -trying- to look for articles that use the Florida Everglades problem with large constrictors as an excuse to ban ownership of large constrictors across the entire UnitedStates where snakes like that couldn't even last through fall/early spring, much less the winter time. Anyone care to point me in that direction? It doesn't have to be on that, if you can point me towards any bad science examples that involve reptiles or animals I would REALLY appreciate it!
