Politicians are Corporate Bitches
…and Monsanto is the Anti-Christ
by Antenna Wilde
It has become increasing clear that very few—if any—mainstream news outlets are objective. The same could be said for any news outlet I suppose, everyone has a bias to a degree, but the whole POINT of journalism is to remain indifferent. The New York Times should not be endorsing anyone, simply reporting the facts as they arise. Same goes for the rest of ’em….
That is why the web is increasingly becoming the most important source of independent, unbiased news and information. Let’s hope “The Man” doesn’t gobble up every PING, search engine and re-direction there is (which, by the way, is happening with Fox “News” on WordPress). Otherwise, what seems unbiased will slowly become a mainstream FEED, which equals: JUST PLAIN CENSORED.
Take the case of Jane Akre and Steve Wilson, two Fox reporters in Tampa who, in 1997, were fired for refusing to revise a story regarding recombinant bovine growth hormone produced by Monsanto, a multi-billion dollar company that brought you such favorites as Agent Orange, “Terminator “seeds, and an ongoing series of heinous genetically altered chemical DUMPING right in your back yard.
Fox news bowed to pressure from Monsanto and fired the reporters who refused to alter the facts of the story. The reporters sued Fox—and won—but the decision was reversed on appeal. Why? According to Columbia Journalism Review, “Fox successfully appealed against judgment on the grounds that its First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and press protected it from such litigation, and that the FCC’s policy against distortion of news was not a sufficiently significant rule for its breach to invoke the whistleblower law.”
Which means, oddly enough, that Fox didn’t argue it HADN’T distorted the facts, rather, it’s argument was that The First Amendment gives them the RIGHT to present a “distortion of the news.” And they call it “Fair and Balanced.”
What is even scarier is the fact that a giant corporation like Fox won’t even mess with Monsanto who, one could argue, poses the biggest threat to the survival of the human race. Their genetically modified foods are unknowingly consumed daily by Americans (banned in every other first world country, by the way) have been shown to cause liver and kidney toxification in rats (then released for human consumption after a 90 day “test” period) and are cross-pollinating organic foods every time the wind blows.
Perhaps the most transparent indication that Monsanto is run by the Anti-Christ is, after this accidental pollination occurs, they sue the affected farmers for “patent infringement”. Hillarious! Of course this is all kept quiet by our Politicians (who receive PAC money and LOBBYING money from Monsanto) and the Media pundits who, as one can imagine, keep their mouths shut by stuffing them with ORGANIC FOOD.
