    How about some reporting that goes beyond "he said, she said"? Would it have killed Ms. Bronstad to do a little Google research and synthesize at least an objective sentence or two about the latest molecular research. Citing one 8-year-old study that has since been refuted in part by its authors, just because one side in a lawsuit has adduced it as evidence, barely qualifies as effort. We pay good money for our NLJ subscriptions, and it would be nice to be rewarded once in a while with reporting that gives readers a little more of what they need to draw intelligent conclusions about which side in a lawsuit is full of sugar, and which is honing more closely to the truth.
