Jonathan Eisen gets his feathers ruffled over at The Tree of Life, handing his third "Overselling Genomics Award" (and adds a bonus "Overselling Men" award) to Newsweek for their recent feature on the ten "most esteemed" biologists in the world today. He laments that there are no women on the list and that they all focus on only one kind of research — genomics. Newsweek trying anything but mainstream? Never one to miss a chance to be cynical, we think a new award category should be created: "Overselling (mainstream) Science Journalism."
