In 2001 Media Monitors Network noted that: "Dr Reeves' credibility as a commentator and researcher has already been extensively questioned in 'The Return of the 'Ugly American': Eric Reeves and Sudan'. (2) The credibility of his claims about Sudan have been undermined further by recent comments made by the United Nations World Food Programme which is active in those very areas of Sudan about which Mr Reeves makes his bold assertions."
