The interesting thing about this is its assumptions:

        Czerkas [...] thinks one is seeing a desire on the
        part of many conservative paleontologists to
        pigeonhole the world of bird/dinosaur relations into a
        "birds are dinosaurs" framework -- in the face of the
        new Chinese evidence that obviously contradicts that


        Mark, my words, next year there will be findings from
        somewhere else that support the conservative ROM
        paleontologists over Mr. Czerkas.

In other words, the dinosaur origin of birds is now regarded iun the
mainstream news as a "conservative" interpretation.
