Is Monsanto (NYSE: MON) a winner or a sinner? Many people love to hate the agribusiness behemoth
A poll of Natural News readers recently voted Monsanto "Most Evil," soundly beating other corporate contenders such as Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) and BP (NYSE: BP). Monsanto also beat out BP and Chevron (NYSE: CVX) to receive Corporate Accountability International's Corporate Hall of Shame award for 2010
As it stands, Monsanto has quite a reputation for being a bully in agriculture. A Vanity Fair article from 2008 headlined Monsanto's "Harvest of Fear," citing not only its "ruthless legal battles against small farmers" but also a "decades-long history of contamination."
Monsanto also has a dark past that's difficult to shrug off. Monsanto, Dow Chemical (NYSE: DOW), and several other chemical companies manufactured Agent Orange. The highly toxic herbicide, used in the Vietnam War, has saddled its makers with a bad reputation and numerous lawsuits related to the illnesses and horrific birth defects to which it has been linked.
Monsanto's also known to have "friends in high places," so to speak. Recent Wikileaks cables revealed U.S. diplomats angling for a trade war with Europe over genetically modified products, which are notoriously distrusted there. The U.S. allegedly also tried to pressure the Vatican to drop its moral opposition to genetic engineering.
I'm sure there will be plenty of rebuttals to my take on Monsanto."
