BIO 2004 has denied Indybay credentials due to writing from an "activist point of view"
On May 17th an Indybay journalist applied with the BIO 2004 International Conference to obtain press credentials. After playing phone tag with the corporation for weeks the reporter was denied credentials under the pretense of "writing from the activist point of view, directly being related to activist organizations and opposing biotechnology".
