More Science Journalism

The associated press reports:
Scientists mapped the Milky Way in a more detailed, three-dimensional way and found that it's 15 percent larger in breadth. More important, it's denser, with 50 percent more mass, which is like weight.

"Which is like weight"? Are you kidding me? Am I missing something or was this written by a preschooler? Don't you mean "More important[ly]"? And what's with all those phrases and commas? Clean that sh*t up!

Well, it's technically true. Mass is like weight just like water is like ocean.
