        Not revealing your professional funding relationships (funding or any kind of relationship), especially when one of them is with the largest and most powerful

          Not revealing your professional funding relationships (funding or any kind of relationship), especially when one of them is with the largest and most powerful world-wide maker of the toxic chemical implicated in being lethal to honeybees, will always look suspicious.  One wonders, with all these in-depth interviews being conducted why the simple phrase, “You know, I’ve worked with and know the Bayer Corporation for a long time, and here’s my professional opinion on the implication of imidacloprid’s effects on honeybees…”--especially considering that there has been so much research and attention focused on this chemical--was not included in these interviews. Even as a point of contrast to the newly revealed data.   If Bayer Corporation were one of your professional relationships, in any manner, don’t you think it would have at least been part of the conversation, if only for the purpose of keeping your collaborator’s reputation safe, insofar as it regards your own research?

          And as far as the top secret nature of Army and military research, they will seldom reveal their relationships for any reason, primarily because they don’t have to.
