    Alison saw this story on the BBC News website and thought you should see it.  It’s very worrying and makes no mention of Sarpo.  Have a look and see what you think.


    ** New GM potatoes can resist blight **

    The standard of scientific reporting at the BBC is almost as bad as it’s technology reporting. I hold my head in my hands every time I hear the words ‘Rory Cellan-Jones’.

    Media Lens has some very interesting things to say about the state of journalism today. http://www.medialens.org

    The only decent journalism to do with food and growing these days is the Food Programme on R4 – and that’s not why it was.
