On our recent farm trip to the JSR farms in Driffield, East Yorkshire, United Kingdom (see entries below), we spoke to a couple of the journalists present at the event to get their take on the issues of how pesticides are portrayed in the media, what they see as driving the debate, and what they have been discovering as they have been researching their stories. A few clips from our conversations may be seen here.
Since we spoke to Dirk Müller-Thederan of Die Welt in Ljubljana back in April, we’ve often taken the time to speak to journalists. Although they my not be experts on the scientific or the legislative elements of the current debate, their capacity to formulate an overview and their take on the issues in the media is extremely interesting. Plus I think they appreciate to have the camera turned on them for a change! Watch this space for more to come.Author : Helen Dunnett
