I am so glad I got the hell out of ScienceBlogs when National Geographic bought the site. As if the pseudo-scientific crap on their cable channel wasn’t bad enough, now they’re flat out lying to kids. This is the cover of the latest issue of National Geographic for Kids:
Seriously, NatGeo? Seriously? They try to make it all okay by putting a disclaimer in it that says “If these descriptions don’t match you, that’s OK. These are just for fun.” That’s about as credible as those psychic hotline ads that say “for entertainment purposes only” in tiny letters at the bottom. Shame on NatGeo.
