LHC Back Up and Running

So the Large Hadron Collider is back up and running in Geneva.  And so to are problematic journalism article about this, essentially equating the science of LHC to a sporting event. 

But! Hey! Did you know yesterday the scientists at CERN smashed subatomic particles with three times more energy!  Nevermind, what they hope to acheive and learn by doing this.  Or their methods.  Because,hey, everyone was cheering like it was the Olympics. 

Anyway, this is also a problem of poltical journalism as well.
