As a journalist it baffles me that my colleagues seem to think that these are stories that rise to the level of "newsworthy." If someone pitched them a story from a field that isn't media that basically went "hey, this woman was supposed to be really great, turns out she's just kind of average," they'd be like "okay who cares." But because these women are vaguely their competitors and peers it's worth 10,000 words?

Way way way back in season ONE of Flash Forward I did an episode about what would happen if we got rid of all the mosquitoes on the planet. One of the plans floated back then was to use genetic engineering to make them infertile. After that episode went out, a biotech company tried that. It... has not gone according to plan. https://gizmodo.com/genetically-modified-mosquitoes-are-breeding-in-brazil-1838146152
