Reporter Celeste Biever of New Scientist was caught apparently telling lies in an attempt to infiltrate the Cornell IDEA club according to club president Hannah Maxson. In the IDEA club’s letter of protest to Biever’s employer, Maxson wrote:

This one was too juicy to pass up, and too funny! 🙂 See: The Evolution-Design Cold Wars for all the details.
