With several hours of television news, every day, why do the networks reduce each story down to a few sentences? They prune away all the facts and background information, leaving a snappy sound bite and a few buzzwords to superimpose over the stock image behind the news mannequin.

Ian Frazer has been working on a vaccine for Human Papilloma Virus for fifteen years. This vaccine provides protection against several strains of Human Papilloma Virus. HPV causes seventy percent of cervical cancer cases.

How does the media report this breakthrough that will save thousands of lives? They describe it as a 'Cancer Vaccine'. I'm sure the nations doctors will be pleased when hundreds of tards who have heard a sound bite about a cure for cancer start filling their waiting rooms.

Or maybe they'll think that cervical cancer only effects tennis players.
