GMA Media Bias on Noah's Ark Finding?

More media bias?

Over at ABC's "Good Morning America" this morning, they did the big Noah's Ark discovery story. They have a title under the story that says, "Experts are 99.9% sure". Guess what? They decide to bring on Professor Eric Cline from George Washington University who is skeptical about the finding. I guess he is the 0.01%. Are you kidding me?

The video is below.

Look, I'm not saying that you have to have on someone who believes this claim to be true but how about having on both sides? Oy-vey. Someone pass me the coconut macaroons ( obscure Passover reference)

# Bias? Really?

The claim to 99.9% surety comes from the men who made the found. It is not the pronouncement of the scholarly community.

Dr. Cline was called upon to give his opinion on how scholars would verify the claims of those who say they found the ark. To which he replied that he has an open mind, but that he would like it to be independently verified. This is hardly biased--it is standard operating procedure given any controversial archeological claim (see: the tomb of St. James). Skepticism is especially warranted given the number of false claims to have found the ark in the past 100 years.

Based on previous dubious claims by a multitude of searchers (almost every other year-none ever confirmed) ABC News and everyone else should be dubious. Prov. 18:17

Shouldn't we blame ABC for not specifying who the "experts" were? For whom should we really cast the first stone?
