I have to pass this along. The Chicago Sun-Times has “found” the 300 millionth American. Who just happens to be from Chicago.

(About a week ago, we warned you about this media hype of No. 300,000,000. Which has valuably highlighted discussions about the human footprint on this planet. And in Chicago has highlighted a journalistic leap to conclusions.)

The Beachwood Reporter says: “Problem is, there is absolutely no evidence the baby is the 300 millionth American. The paper just made it up.”
