Minimal News Coverage on CIRM Chair Nominees

The latest news coverage of selection of a new leader for California's $3 billion stem cell agency is meager, to say the least.

Absent from the game this morning is most of the major media in the state, including the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle and the San Jose Mercury News. The Chronicle's and Mercury's backyards include the headquarters of CIRM, not to mention the major beneficiaries of the agency's largess. Oddly, The Sacramento Bee carried a story yesterday about the third nomination of Jon Thomas for chair of CIRM but failed to report the new nomination of Frank Litvack.

Here are links to the stories that searches by the California Stem Cell Report turned up this morning: Ron Leuty's piece in the San Francisco Business Times, Kathie Worth in the San Francisco Examiner and David Sider in The Bee. Sphere: Related Content
