An article on Fox News says that scientists from the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Germany have reconstructed the Black Death! Oh no, we're all doomed! Why would scientists bring back a long dormant killer disease? Well, buried beneath the alarming rhetoric is the truth: they reconstructed the disease in a computer to learn more about its origins. Anthony and Jeff take this chance to rant against the alarmist nature of faux science news, and advocate for reading beyond the headlines.
