Best thing to do to get noticed for Science Articles: Say "Darwin Was Wrong"
Just a note on how manipulative the media can be, even science writers. I just saw this article and find it amazing that the title says Darwin was wrong about domestic chickens (which he stated over 100 years ago), but if you read the article it states " even though most of the genes in domesticated fowls come from the red junglefowl, at least one other species must have contributed.... it is most likely the case that the grey junglefowl was crossed with an early form of the domesticated chicken". So the domestic chicken came from the red jungle fowl, and was later crossed with the grey junglefowl but Darwin was wrong!!! at least it gets your article noticed I guess.
