Your article was such a wonderful example of reporter bias that I had to share it with my children. Growing genetically modified, herbicide-resistant beets and canola “lowers the abundance of other plant species and certain insect groups that typically grow along with these crops.” But genetically modified, herbicide-resistant cornfields “have more weeds and insects than regular cornfields . . .” Gee, opposite effects, and both sound bad. Little wonder that “each camp may be tempted to see support for their views in the findings.”
