Sawubona uPatty Michalski, uMhleli weChief, e-USA Namuhla:

Sibhalela ukuzwakalisa ukukhathazeka kwethu ngokuthi i-USA Today iyaqhubeka shicilela amakholomu abhalwe ngamalungu e-American Council on Science and Health (ACSH), iqembu elixhaswe ngezinkampani elinomlando omude wokukhuthaza ama-ajenda ezinkampani aphikisana nesayensi ejwayelekile. I-USA Today akufanele isize leli qembu liphakamise ubunikazi balo obungamanga njengomthombo othembekile, nozimele kusayensi. Abafundi bakho bafanelwe imininingwane enembile mayelana nokuthi leli qembu limele ini nokuthi ngubani, njengoba bezindla ngokuqukethwe kwamakholomu.

Lezi akuzona izinsolo ezingenamsebenzi. Amaqembu amaningi asayinwe ngaphansi kwezempilo, ezemvelo, ezabasebenzi kanye nezintshisekelo zomphakathi abelandela umsebenzi we-ACSH eminyakeni edlule. Sizibhale phansi izimo lapho iqembu lisebenze khona dicilela phansi isayensi yokushintsha kwesimo sezulu, nokuphika izinsongo zezempilo ezihambisana nemikhiqizo ehlukahlukene, kufaka phakathi intuthu kagwayiukukhwabanisaizibulala-zinambuzane futhi industrial Amakhemikhali - konke ngaphandle kokucaca mayelana nabaxhasi bayo bezinkampani.

Siyakuqaphela lokho zezimali amadokhumenti okutholwe nguMama Jones kukhombisa ukuthi i-ACSH ithole uxhaso ezinkampanini zikagwayi, zamakhemikhali, zemithi nezikawoyela. Amaqembu anentshisekelo yomphakathi anakho kubika ukuthi i-ACSH ithole uxhaso kwiKoch Foundations phakathi kuka-2005-2011, futhi yakhululwa imibhalo yangaphakathi okukhombisa ukuthi i-ACSH yacela ama- $ 100,000 kwaSyngenta ngo-2009 ukuthi ibhale kahle ngomkhiqizo wayo i-atrazine - umnikelo owawuzobekwa “uhlukane futhi uhluke ekusekelweni okujwayelekile kokusebenza kweSyngenta bekulokhu kunikelwa ngokukhululeka eminyakeni edlule.”

Ngesikhathi lapho umphakathi ungabaza ukuba semthethweni kwemithombo yezindaba, sikholwa ukuthi kubalulekile ukuthi okushicilelwe okufana ne-USA Today kulandele izindinganiso eziphakeme kakhulu zokuziphatha kobuntatheli futhi kusetshenzelwe umphakathi ngeqiniso nangokucaca okukhulu ngangokunokwenzeka.

Sikucela ngenhlonipho ukuthi uyeke ukushicilela amanye amakholomu abhalwe amalungu e-American Council on Science and Health, noma okungenani adinga ukuthi abantu bakhombe inhlangano ngokunembile njengeqembu lezokuxhasa elixhaswe yinkampani.
