Misinformation about misinformation on Monsanto?

That they downplay GMOs makes me wonder if they're really trying to help us understand some conservative plot, or just shift the focus away from Monsanto.

This documentary was pretty damn enlightening.

Monsanto isn't about feeding the world, they're about selling chemicals and reaping massive profits. Oh, and making small, poor farmers indebted to Monsanto for life:

Interesting articles. I dont think any of us believe that this latest legislation is the only legislation that protects corporations, on the other hand, if this rider was no big deal, why hide it as a rider under an important budget bill? Smells fishy to me.

And also, it was a Republican that drafted it so they get zero pass on this.
