Weiss on Collins in Newsweek

less than 1 minute read

Why is Ken Weiss invading my Newsweek?

On a blog, anthropologist Kenneth M. Weiss complained recently that as Human Genome Project director, Collins "directly or indirectly intimidated other NIH agencies to get into the genome game That did, and still does, co-opt funds that could be used for other things instead."

GASP! Why is Ken Weiss invading blogs!?!

Here’s a link: “Francis Collins and the NIH”. Newsweek should know it’s the height of dishonesty to cite from a blog without providing proper sourcing, so that readers can check for themselves that it has been cited accurately.

The blog, “The Mermaid’s Tale”, is written by Weiss and Anne Buchanan. I’ve added it to my feed!
