Actual quote and source of (paraphrased): "World round, scientists say; others disagree"?

I remember reading some years ago, I believe on the blue, a quip about problems with journalistic balance, phrased along the lines of "always trying to accommodate the other side means you end up with headlines like 'world round, scientists say; others disagree'." (To be clear, I don't remember the line being from a MeFite, but probably referenced by or possibly linked to by one.) Can anybody point me to the original source and/or the exact quote? I feel guilty always mangling it. Thanks!
