    And there are reporters and journalists at organizations that I don't really trust who do very good work and so I give them more runway on stories.
    Like the NYP?

    Did the pig not check the organ donor box on its drivers license?

    Also, while people should absolutely be skeptical of all media they consume, one of the tests you should use is "who/how does this story benefit this person/group" I just don't see what this doctor has to gain by lying or this reporter has to gain by lying.

    Are you really this deeply offended that I don't take CNN seriously as a news outlet? I don't take fox seriously either.
    Like what's wrong with you?
    I didn't say CNN reported it. You understand how hypothetical questions work, yes?

    I also didn't bring up CNN; you did.

    So it's not Yahoo News you trust, it's The Washington Post?

    I guess he trusts any news agency with the word "post" in their title.

    Why didn't you apply this thorough journalistic interrogation before making a weird conspiracy theory thread about the US persecuting Russians based off the Young Turks idiot lying and about a government document and deliberately misquoting it lol

    I look at stories and writers skeptically, we all should. Skepticism isn't a bad thing. One of the first things I think about is...what's this person's angle?

    So to get back on topic, one of the advantages to something like this, is that even with human organ donations, there can be a shelf life for how long they will last even if the surgery goes well, specifically for kidney's, and once you already got a kidney, good luck getting on top of the list again.

    But with xenotransfusion, a person could pretty quickly get another organ if they need one. Also, no more rationing kidneys. We could give someone 2 new kidneys instead of just one.

    Exactly. If transplants like these can become commonplace, it will be good for patients and they won't need to go to dialysis centers 3 times a week.

    I imagine there will be fewer people waking up in a tub full of ice with a kidney missing.
    There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

    And you can eat the donor when you come home from recovery. A might fine pig that was.

    Also, countries like China won't need to engage in human organ harvesting.
