Censored Link or Just a Glitch? 'EPA Knowingly Approved Bee-Killing Pesticide '

On the heels of the news that the government acknowledged they killed hundreds of starlings in Yankton, South Dakota on the 17th of January by putting posianed bait in a feedlot, comes this story: EPA Knowingly Approved Bee-Killing Pesticide ,found on Rense.com. Clicking on the link brings up a "page not found" message, which is either a glitch, or, falling into the Rense mind set, a conspiracy.

Here's the story on Natural News: EPA knowingly approved bee-killing pesticide.
(NaturalNews) A Colorado beekeeper recently obtained a leaked document revealing that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) knows a popular crop pesticide is killing off honey bees, but has allowed its continued approval anyway. Despite opposition from its own scientists, EPA officials first gave the a-okay to Bayer CropScience's toxic pesticide clothianidin in 1993 based on the company's own flawed safety studies. But now it has been revealed that the EPA knew all along about the dangers of clothianidin and decided to just ignore them.
The article brings up the obvious question: if the EPA knew clothiandin was toxic, why go ahead with its application? And, why has clothiandin been banned in Europe, yet its use is approved in the States?
