On 19 July 2017 The Huffington Post reported:
Few science writers have worked as hard as Keith Kloor to impact public opinion on genetically modified organism (GMO) agriculture. An adjunct professor at New York University and former editor for Audubon and blogger for Discover, Kloor has spent years championing GMO products and portraying skeptics and critics as scientifically illiterate quacks. Kloor's one-man crusade to paint environmental advocates as nitwits includes a classic of the Kloor canon: his self-aggrandizing piece in Issues in Science and Technology comparing demands for GMO transparency to the tactics of the Trump campaign and the anti-vaccine movement (a favorite bugbear). The public has known for some time that Keith Kloor loves GMOs. What they haven't known, until now, is how hard he's worked with industry-funded 'experts' ' to present corporate talking points as journalism and then try to cover his tracks.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern environment and health systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
An avalanche of documents released through court proceedings and freedom of information requests point to a coordinated effort by corporate front groups, scientists secretly funded by agrichemical industry giants, and allied reporters attempting to portray themselves as arbiters of scientific expertise while condemning critics of GMO technology as 'antiscience.' While some of this story has been told, Kloor's level of involvement has so far gone unremarked -- and there have been no corrections or retractions of his work.
