Here's a question that popped into my head the other day when the global food crisis story finally, finally gained global MSM traction with the food riots in Haiti.
IS LIBBY ROSENTHAL OF THE IHT TO BIOFUELS AND THE CREDIBILITY OF THE IHT, WHAT JUDITH MILLAR WAS TO WMD AND THE CREDIBILITY OF THE NYT?
Someone really ought to go back and do a big examination of everything she has written on this, despite being based in Rome right next door to the UN's FAO. (And despite having a travel budget that is rumoured to be bigger than Roger Cohen's.)
Did she buy hook, line and sinker the biofuels spin? Was she over-excited and swept away?
