You would think all these News outlets would run away with this story to bring FOX News down.

Yet they don't.

We are screwed. "Beware the Military/Industrial Complex". With that comes a media that is completely in bed with Giant Corporations. Giant EVIL Corporations!

I am totally aghast at what is truly going on in the world we live.

I love my Organic Milk without Growth Hormones!

Although I know there are people who are so cynical as to believe that even has issues, but I can tell one heckuva difference between the two...

Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. I have read quite a bit about Monsanto, but I didn't realize these two journalists did investigative work on Monsanto and were fired for wanting to tell the truth. I have to tell you that I'm appalled and saddened to learn not only about their treatment, but also that it's apparently not a crime to fabricate facts in a news story. It's hard to believe, but I'm glad that I'm at least aware that what's presented as "factual" news might be anything but that.

As far as GM food and meat/milk products made with hormones and antibiotics, I try very hard to avoid a lot of that by eating organic foods. My diet isn't 100% organic, but that's only because buying non-organic is so much cheaper. I'm pretty at the point where I think I'm ready to commit to only eating organic and just bite the bullet as far as the costs are long as I'm financially able to afford it anyway.

I also just signed a petition and I hope the rest of you concerned citizens will do the same:

Thanks cornblossom and all!
Wanted to post this. I appologize if it has been already.

Let's take Monsanto's recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone. It's designed to increase milk production. But the US already has an oversupply of milk, so increased production merely drives down the price that farmers receive. In addition, rBGH is so costly that dairy farmers in the Third World will be unable to purchase it, thereby excluding them from any of the "benefits" of this technology...The myth that world hunger is a result of global food shortages was debunked years ago. More germane issues for the poor include access to the food that exists and access to land to grow their own. High technology, high input cash crops are not the answer to this problem....They are, however, helpful to Monsanto's appetite for increased control over food production. Their purchase of seed companies, their contractual prohibitions on farmers' traditional practice of saving seeds from one season to the next (know as brown bagging), their opposition to smaller companies trying to avoid bovine growth hormone, all speak of a company anxious to advance our dependence on them for our sustenance.

Monsanto's early forays into genetically manipulated crops are aimed at bolstering sales of its own herbicides. At least here we have a modicum of truth in labeling...Monsanto executives seem to believe their soybeans are no different than conventional ones, but when it comes to consumer's right to know, Monsanto is firmly opposed.

These hormones are completely unnecessary. Your quote supports this.

I work in Agriculture. I manufacture a feed product that, when blended, helps dairy cattle absorb more protein, thus, producing more milk. Yes, I work for a competitor to Monsanto. And yes, this subject really does concern me.

Don't know if anyone already posted a link to this youtube video (didn't read this entire thread) but here it is anyway:

Milk, The Deadly Poison

Also notice some of the similar videos on the right sidebar of this youtube page - I haven't watched all of these videos, but a few could be worth watching too.

I'm a vegan most of the time myself, though I do have some nonfat or lowfat dairy yogurt now and then, in particular a brand such as Stonyfield Farm that claims to raise cows in a natural, drug-free manner. And I think it's best to use only certified organic foods when possible...there are just so many chemicals being thrown at us otherwise...

Here's an example. I used to avoid organic apples, thinking they weren't any different and were much too expensive anyway. Besides, I always believed I had an allergic reaction to apples, since I would develop small mouth sores and feel a strange ache in my lower back (like near my adrenal glands) from eating apples.
But then I tried a bag of organic apples. What a difference! I had none of my usual bad reactions whatsoever, and besides that, the apples tasted absolutely wonderful with incredible flavor. They're definitely worth the dollar or so more per bag than a bag of regular apples.

So, it wasn't an allergic reaction to apples, it was an allergic, or maybe just a *normal* reaction to the numerous herbicides and pesticides on the typically produced, mass-market apples...

Something to think about...

Thanks guys for that!
I drink soy milk and really enjoy it.(natural directions)
I switched several years ago when it
became easier to get and a little cheaper.
Honestly I like it better than cows milk, generally.
Cows milk tastes like water now, bad.
I have tried goats milk and its okay.
Better for you than cows milk for sure.
I dont have to worry bout the bad stuff as much.
Cows milk is for calves, not humans.....IMO

You guys are making some great posts for sure. I just wanted to remind you all that the essence of this story lies as much (or more, really) in the treatment of these reporters by FOX as it does with Monsanto. FOX should have stood its ground from the get go, and reported the truth as is, instead of allowing itself to being manipulated, pressured, and threatened by corporate interests and greed. That simple.

Independent, "let the chips fall where they may" investigations are no longer a focus of the MSM. Profits and politics are front and center.

Disgusting and disturbing? Totally.

Surprising? Totally not.

Monsanto is, without a doubt, the most evil corporation on the face of the planet today, eclipsing even everybody's favourite demon-seed - Haliburton. As much as I may despise Haliburton, Cheney and everything they stand for, I must admit that, beyond the arena of war profiteering and/or mongering, they're no more or less a threat to humanity than every other blood soaked corporation throughout history.

I wish I could say the same for Monsanto.

I can't.

The fact that the world stands back and allows a company like Monsanto to tinker with the very building blocks of human life, vis-a-vis our food supply, still, to this day, astonishes me. The fact that FOX News covers for them, however, doesn't astonish me. These were the same people that were trumpeting the virtues of the Iraq invasion from the script provided by the Bush Administration from day one.

In the end, when Monstantos' grand experiment with the genome of our food takes a turn for worse (as I think we all suspect it will), we should string the media up on the next tree over from the good people at Monsanto, in thanks for all their efforts on our behalf. Disgusting.

By the way, in another related note, considering the latest news I've read about the colony collapse disorder plaguing our honey bees, I will be SHOCKED if Monsanto is not implicated in some way, shape or form - not that we'll ever hear about it from the MSM, mind you. Yet another unintended consequence in what promises to be a long string of them. I wonder what name they'll give it when it's human communities collapsing?

It gets even sicker when Monsanto in in bed with the likes of FDA.

Remember Aspartame? It is in practically everything that is out there on the market that is sugar free. In the guise of different brandings. Just ask yourself, do any one of you go past the day without consuming this toxic chemical in one form or the other?

It's in every soft drink, chewing gum, lolly, sugarfree satchet, etc. It's like a malignant cancer that has pervaded the whole food industry and is virtually impossible to eliminate.

Best of all, any adverse reaction if at all, will not be evident until coming decades. This makes it practically foolproof for any legal action by consumers. Proving it will be virtually impossible as there is so much s**t in all the foodstuff that we consume.

I think people have become desensitized to the realization that the media lies to us, manipulates information and is in the pocket of big business.(at least to some here at ATS) Seeing as most of the media outlets are owned by larger corporations that are not even related to media or the news, ie: NBC=GE.

I'm glad you posted this story because it highlights disturbing issues on multiple points, returning full circle to the main point that greed and corruption make excellent bedfellows.

It appears that this is from 2008, but it actually took place in 1997- assuming that the date coming off the fax machine in the video is correct.

As to your other question:

[edit on Thu Jun 4th 2009 by TrueAmerican]

This is indeed an old story. One I have brought up on occassion on this site. When I was taking my MBA we had to do a thesis on a documentary. Quite interesting how they had us do this. It was the documentary, "the Corporation". A VERY worth while watch. There were actually 3 reporters total but the first two were key. It was a new segment for Fox News in Florida where these three would find stories. I think their seg was called the investigators or something like that.

Anyway, they uncovered the fact that this evil corporation has indeed been forcing this drug on farmers. Even though the cows already produced PLENTY of milk to provide for everyone in this country over and over. The farmers received kickbacks from tax breaks (again, the evil corporate giants with their hands so deep in the politicians pockets that they can play pool or tiddly winks all they want it seems) so they went with it.

However, this hormone is causing some pretty severe reactions in developing people. Girls are 'blossoming' sooner and developing breast cancers at earlier ages and on and on.

Well, they uncovered this and created a series of pieces to be aired during their time slot. It got shot down by the top. Well, the top got fired and the new top shot it down once the 'lawyers' from monsanto began to threaten them. Now why would they want this piece killed?

Not because it would hurt the company with slander but because the truth would be exposed. The truth that they paid off the FDA and politicians to keep silent.

They are still forcing this on us to drink every time we buy a gallon of milk. Here in Ohio our 'protect the people' politicians have made it illegal for dairy producers to label their milk as BGH (can't remember the acronym for it right now) free. What a flippin crock of crap that is. Why did they do that? Because monsanto (no caps for the proper name on purpose, they don't deserve that much) sent their lawyers after the state.

It's a joke and this company is probably one of the biggest evil empires on this planet. The great thing is that they have had some pretty well known CEOs that have made it to VERY high places in government in this country. Care to take some guesses? Just google it and you will be amazed at how intertwined our government and industry is. It's a joke.

Like the old saying says, "It's not what you know but who you know."


Edit to add: Oh yeah. And the biggest thing to come from this whole fiasco is that Fox, during their defense against the fired reporters, won their appeal against them because the supreme court decided that since Fox is a private business it does NOT have to tell the truth in its news. Yup, they can lie. They don't have to tell the whole truth and they can withhold whatever they want. It's because they are providing a service.

And yet most people will never know this. They will trust that the MSM HAS to tell the truth.

We always buy organic milk with no BGH.
Also - Ben and Jerrys Ice cream - no BGH.

As for Fox News and the coverup .... was there any legal action?
What was the outcome?

Why didn't these guys do the CNN or MSNBC thing?
Or did they do a coverup as well?

As outright criminal as Monsanto is and the way they are poisoning us, what is infuriating is the fact that falsifying news and withholding truth is just fine.

Interesting that the so called investigative journalists out there, think 60 minutes, 20/20, and Anderson Cooper and all the rest have been silent on this. We couldn't get the truth out of these scumbags if the world's survival depended on them. Okay, we all know this is just what is happening, but i had to say it.

Is there nothing anyone can do about this? It would seem to me that if UK and Canada have outlawed the use of this crap that the US consumers should have some sort of recourse.

What sucks for me personally is there is not any way that I can afford organic food. No way. With the $200 a month in my budget allocated for food, food stamps I must eat tons of poison a day. I do eat very healthy but with all that I have read here on ats lately about GM food and now this....I feel very much like I am over a barrel here. Apartment living leaves no way to garden so I guess I will just learn to love the yummy hormones and food additives.

OH man, this makes me hate FOX NEWS even more than I already did. I really ought to call the Sean Hannity show and ask him why he still works for a news organization that does this. Of course I'd have to tell the screener a load of hogwash to have any chance of getting on.

There isn't "news" anymore. They are all Editorial Opinion Pieces. Journalism went extinct. Look over these links regarding journalism issues and ethics.

MSM news is entertainment, not real news anymore. No legal requirement to publish the truth. Useful for the weather and sports, but only marginally useful for other information. Public beware.

So the question is, where is the real truth hiding out these days? At ATS? WND? Rawstory? Infowars? Russia Today?

Answer: in your mind after you assimilate a variety of sources on the issue.

posted on Jun, 5 2009 @ 11:35 AM
I think these reporters should work for ATS. We'd appreciate their work, and give them a bonus compared to being fired for telling the truth and helping the public get better health. Same thing with another thread concerning the hazards of flouride and how it accelerates tooth decay, contains contaminants, etc. Pretty interesting stuff, and you saw it here....denying ignorance..... Sometimes the tinfoil hat helps a lot, don't you think?

Wow. I am a huge milk drinker and now I dont think I will want to drink it. My ex told me he heard something bad was in milk years ago and he has never drank it since. Scary stuff! I am going to go through some of the links now and read more about this company.
