Submission + - Fox News attacks bugs, Entomologists strike back (about.com)

Cazakatari writes: Sean Hannity on Fox News recently blasted Michigan State University for using stimulus funds to preserve their historic bug collection, which has insulted many entomologists (including myself). Supposedly this is wasteful spending, since only a few jobs were directly created. However, the collection is a library of information for research on agricultural pest control research, which no one will deny is both important and makes jobs. Most importantly, the way the news organization leered about ''bug scientists'' has proven their ignorance. If you don't like bugs, entomologists are the wrong people to slander.
