    Organic Controversy



    It was a strange week in Organic Land.

    Regulations were issued, people screamed, regulations were withdrawn. Democracy in action.

    But, as I called experts to try to understand and unravel the controversy, I discovered that:

    The experts didn't have all the facts; the media made mistakes; bureaucrats refused to return calls; and politicians saved face.

    Join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network, as we unravel the recent controversy that put "organic" once again on the front pages of America's leading newspapers.
