SIRC – Media Watch 22-10-99

Cookery Corner

The Telegraph kindly provided a recipe for the definitive health scare this month. "Take one GM potato. Subject it to a half-baked study, stir in a dollop of media overkill, spice with BSE angst and overripe comments from environmentalists." Maybe, for the perfect result it should be served with a liberal garnish of substantial equivalence and sprinkled with the essence of capitalist big business. Plate while the story is still hot. Serves millions.
