Commentary - GMOs: Science Fact or Fiction?
I'm frankenly shocked that the editor would bring bias and choose to take a voice of 'persuasion' vs. information in her 'open mind' diatribe. This rhetoric has a name; it's yellow journalism. Her statement of 'even when presented with a highly credentialed scientist...' is demeaning and inculcating; there are highly credentialed experts on both sides of EVERY debate. Apparently she is 'unconsciously filtering out information that does not conform to her own ideas and those of her peers' when she goes for the 'eye catching', forgetting (or ignoring) the code of conduct which she and her industry has a duty to uphold. We don't turn to newspapers for schooling on thinking for ourselves. We read newspapers because with IMPARTIAL and NONJUDGMENTAL data we are best suited to think for ourselves. In the future, just the facts ma'am. We're not your children and don't appreciate your superciliousness and presumptuousness.
