I agree with you 1000% on this Brian.
If you want another REALLY EMBARASING example, just look at the Statesman Urinal's coverage of Honey bee health issues. Here is a tip:
When ever you see an article in the Urinal about bees; it isn't about bees at all.
It is always an anti pesticide, anti chemical tirade.
Now if you hate pesticides, want bans or what ever, that is your choice.
Write articles bashing pesticides! Please don't masquerade as an advocate of bees. Look back at the articles from the same "reporter". Do you see any credible expert analysis?
Very pathetic.
The latest incident of hive deaths were cases of starvation. Not one cell of nectar in the entire hive then they crashed.
What was the main focus of the Urinal's article? "Pesticides not ruled out"
Excuse me; pesticides are totally unrelated to these cases.
There is so much that can be learned and shared about these incidents, ALL WASTED by the same old diatribe.
A prime learning moment trashed for a personal vendetta.
Embarrassing to say the least!
