Why do we report "stories" like this one?

US fertility "expert" and notorious self-publicist Panos Zavos sent the media into a frenzy three weeks ago by claiming he'd successfully implanted a cloned human embryo in a woman's womb.

Like the wacko Raelian cult before him, he offered absolutely no proof to back up his outlandish claims.

Still, the press lapped it up.

We, the media, are left looking as moronic as Panos Zavos for giving his claims a semblance of credibility.
