Does “that it’s corporate PR” refer to "that the basis is corporate PR”?


Thanks in advance

    You are asking about this phrase:

    "science is denied on the basis that it’s corporate PR."

    You ask if this refers to "that the basis is corporate PR".

    You seem to be simply copying the text, so the answer is obviously "yes". Perhaps you need to word your question differently.

    That is a good recommendation. The usage of "it" tends to harass me. ;)
