Bad Science Journalism

It's amazing how much science journalism doesn't quite cut the mustard (I love that phrase). I haven't even read the paper Geographic parthenogenesis and the common tea-tree stick insect of New Zealand yet - but I have some doubts about this article on Voxy: Sex? Female Stick Insects Can Take It Or Leave It.

For a start they have illustrated the article with a photograph of a praying mantis.
