The piece covered much of the same ground that other papers have traveled in recent weeks, but in many ways the story by reporter Carl Hall painted a bleaker outlook.
Some of the language in the article about CIRM:
"stuck in a seemingly endless legal morass"
"magnet for attacks"
"really a stressful time"
"reduced to begging for handouts"
The article made no reference to the report last week in the San Francisco Examiner that the agency had received another $5 million donation. The Examiner also reported that stem cell chairman Robert Klein said in a speech that he has raised an additional $40 million.
We have queried CIRM about the fund-raising information, but agency has not responded – either to deny or to confirm. Sphere: Related Content
