Update: new Canadian weighs 6 lbs and is Ugandan and (maybe) American
Of course, there's no such thing as unbiased news, right? The only way to get to the truth is to see what everyone is saying. There were two doctors involved in this effort: Raman and Thakker. But, there can only be one ego in charge. It can make parceling out props a nightmare, but sometimes a bit of investigation is necessary. After all, credit must be given where it is due. After the jump, see how the two hopeful heroes stack up against each other.
- Star Tribune: Raman delivered; Thakker helped
- Telegraph: Thakker delivered; Raman helped
- KARE (Minnesota): Raman "assisted" ... but is somehow called "heroic"
- New England Cable News: both doctors "helped with the delivery"
- BBC: both doctors chipped in, but Raman gets the quotes
So far, it's 1.5 to 1.5.
KARE and BBC are a bit tougher. The former says that Raman "assisted" but didn't describe Thakker's role. Also, Raman does get the moniker "heroic" and some loving quotes from colleagues. Thakker gets squat. So, we'll toss Raman a half point for this one.
Raman 2, Thakker 1.5.
The BBC is a bit more even than KARE (which is another Minnesota news outlet). It doesn't give either doctor the prominent role, but Raman gets all the quotes. That's worth a quarter point.
And, we have a winner: Raman 2.25, Thakker 1.5. That being said, in whatever capacity each served, they did bring a new life into this world under circumstances that are far from idea.
