Censored Story of the Week
Monsanto NationORGANIC CONSUMERS ASSOCIATION
Last week Organic Bytes featured OCA Director Ronnie Cummins' latest essay, "Monsanto Nation: Exposing Monsanto's Minions".
Huffington Post censored the article by Cummins, up until now a regular columnist for Huffington, and posted in the place where Cummins' articles are archived, an attack on the OCA by Gary Hirshberg of Stonyfield Farm (a subsidiary of the giant multinational corporation Dannon). The attack included an attempt by Hirshberg to gloss over the fact that Organic industry leaders were prepared to accept "coexistence" or "controlled deregulation" of Monsanto's GE alfalfa until two weeks ago, when their "friend" at the USDA Tom Vilsack and the White House basically slapped them in the face with complete deregulation of GE alfalfa and sugar beets. Perhaps Huffington censored "Monsanto Nation" because Whole Foods and Stonyfield are valued advertisers, or perhaps because Huffington has now been bought out for $315 million by the infamous, profit-at-any-cost media conglomerate AOL. Several dozen other alternative health and political columnists have likewise been recently censored by AOL/Huffington's thought police.
Please help us spread the word by circulating Ronnie Cummins' censored essay "Monsanto Nation" far and wide.
