If that is what the NYT is reporting then they didn't watch (or didn't understand) the presentation. Twice they discussed that the organism was present in nature and transfered to a lab environment rich in arsenic and free from phosophorus. The bacteria thrived where normal organisms wouldn't. They didn't say but I feel pretty confident that they probably did a spectral analysis on their sample before and after and found no phosphorus. (I would have.) The scientists involved on the panel did an excellent job of presenting the material.

Every cloud has a silver lining; you should have sold it, and bought titanium.
