News from the future?

You want to read about scientific news that will be reported by general media outlet about a week or so in the future? Read the New Scientist magazine. When I was travelling to tennis yesterday I was reading last week edition of the New Scientist about the possible new great ape in DRC (actually they think it is another specie of chimpanzee). Guess what? BBC reports it today and Slashdot picks it up as well. And this is not a recent phenomenon. I’ve noticed this trend of the general media lagging the trade media since I started reading the magazine over 10 years ago!
