Is GM corn killing honeybees?

The Germans think that Bt corn is causing honeybees to die in unprecedented numbers. For some reason, the US media hasn't even talked about this cause, citing instead mites and viruses. But it's been all the rage in speculation in Germany since 2005. Even the recent NYT article didn't talk about this interesting idea. Not that the theory is the best one, but it seems like an important part of the puzzle.

I shouldn't be surprised though, this is the same media that talks about the rise of the Taliban internationally, but for domestic consumption, for the US, they give us "Why We Should Teach the Bible in Public School".

I read something about BT corn and bees in some indy press magazine, maybe The Nation or Mother Jones?

The media in the US is terrible.
