Dear Reporters working on the “Mad Cow” Story,
Although the “Discovery of Mad Cow” headlines show some semblence of research on your part, please let me suggest a few more story lines that should be examined.
- Why is only .375 of 1% of the cattle population being tested for BSE?
- Why didn’t the USDA perform the Western Blot test on the cow in question back last November?
- How much pressure did the Beef and Cattle lobbies exert on the USDA to prevent the use of the Western Blot?
I offer these lines of questioning to you at no charge.
Thank you for your future diligence,
