A more balanced MSNBC article sheds a little light on what is going on. It looks like a disgruntled ex-employee of Alcor is behind this round of bad press; it's a great pity, but things like this occasionally happen. Looking on the bright side, there's no such thing as bad publicity for a process or business model (like cryonic suspension). The more we see it in the news, the better. We hope Alcor weathers this storm as it has others in the past and improves its ability to offer suspension services as a result.
