BBC rules report on WiFi dangers was "misleading"

It looks like WiFi fearmongers now have one less tool to back up their slightly dubious arguments, as an official BBC complaints body has now ruled that a program on the subject that aired on the network earlier this year was "misleading." While the complaints body did find that the program's decision to focus on the issue was legitimate, it slammed it for giving a "misleading impression of the state of scientific opinion on the issue" -- specifically, by including only one contributor who disagreed with Sir William Stewart (who first raised the issue), as opposed to the number of other speakers who seconded Stewart's claims. Of course, this latest development will likely do little to rest altogether, what with plenty more "studies" out there where this one came from.
