2002: "Strange Bedfellows" and BeyondIn 2001 and 2002, several newspapers wrote articles about the emerging opposition to cloning and human genetic manipulation among feminists, environmentalists, liberals and progressives. Most press accounts reported this opposition as a "strange bedfellows" or "odd coalition" story, and failed to explain that the concerns of conservative opponents of cloning are very different from those that motivate pro-choice liberals or progressives.
Summer 2001: The "Stem Cell Wars"Coverage of human genetic technology shifted dramatically in the summer of 2001, when controversy over embryonic stem cells consistently made the front pages of The New York Times, the Washington Post, and other national newspapers. The stem cell issue was often blurred by and confused with the issue of research cloning.
Late 2000 - Early 2001: The Raelians, Dr. Antinori, and US Congressional ActionAt the end of 2000 and the beginning of 2001, US media gave prominent coverage to announcements of two separate avowedly imminent efforts to clone a child—one by a religious sect, the Raelians; the other by a private consortium of fertility researchers led by Severino Antinori and Panos Zavos. In February 2001, cover stories on human cloning appeared in Wired, Time, and The New York Times Magazine.
Summer 2000: Announcing the Human GenomeThe announcement in June 2000 about the sequencing of the human genome produced a marked increase in the frequency of articles about human genetic technologies. Much of the coverage of the imminent completion of the human genome project focused on the "race" between Celera Genomics Corporation and the public Human Genome Project.
1998 - Early 2000: The First Wave of "Designer Baby" CoverageMedia interest in genetic technology spiked dramatically after Scottish scientists announced in 1997 that they had successfully cloned an adult sheep. Speculation about the production of cloned humans was prominent in coverage of "Dolly."
