Emergent call or emergent advertisement?


The headline of the Guardian today reads: Urgent calls for regulation after Guardian buys part of smallpox genome through mail order. It revealed that the smallpox DNA could be purchased online. This sounds a good news for those people who want to use it and want to make a living with it. But on the other hand, just as the piece of news intended to be, it could also have been put on great pressue on the government to urge an efficient regulation and reaction against such thing. I'm just wondering if it is neccessary to put such frightening and provoking news on top of the most circulated newspaper?
