Things just keep getting a whole lot worse for Monsanto: Not only has the biotech firm been found guilty of criminal offenses against mankind through the International Monsanto Tribunal, the corporation has additionally been recently involved with a number of scandals. First, it came to light the world’s most disliked company had been colluding together with the EPA, and now they’re being accused of yet one more misdeed.
Recently obtained court documents have revealed that Monsanto continues to be secretly feeding money to “think tanks,” for example the infamous Genetic Literacy Project. From the document obtained by US Right To Know:
Monsanto quietly funnels dollars to “think tanks” such as the “Genetic Literacy Project” and also the “American Council on Science and Health,” organizations meant to shame scientists and highlight info useful to Monsanto along with other chemical manufacturers.
For instance, the American Council on Science and Health recently released articles accusing the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of ignoring the “science” on glyphosate. The Genetic Literacy Project, led by exposed wife beater and past Forbes.com writer Jon Entine, has additionally published posts calling for the IARC to possibly be eliminated and has actually gone so far to accuse the US of “unwittingly funding” conspiracies against Monsanto.
Sources claim that these allegations are backed up by a sequence of emails which were found in court as proof. A few of these exchanges even involved Monsanto executives instructing their staff to “ghost write” material on their products and then have some phony “independent scientists” sign their names to cut back on costs. One such exchange took place between Monsanto’s William Heydens and his colleagues:
A less expensive/more palatable approach might be to involve experts just for areas of contention, epidemiology and possibly MOA (determined by what comes out of the IARC conference), and we ghost-write the Exposure Tox & Genetox sections. An option could be to add Greim and Kier or perhaps Kirkland to acquire their names on the publication, but we would be keeping the cost down by us doing the writing and they would just edit & sign their names as they say. Recall that is how we dealt with Williams Kroes & Munro, 2000.
In addition to the emails and proof of Monsanto’s collusion with government departments plus “think tank” organizations, addititionally there is reason to believe that Monsanto have been employing “trolls” to defend the company on the internet – and to attack anybody who dares speak out against them.
Evidence introduced in the pretrials of Monsanto lawsuits at the US District Court in San Francisco has revealed that under their ever-so-aptly titled “Let Nothing Go” program, Monsanto apparently hired individuals who appeared to have no relation to its company for the sole purpose of trolling the internet with favourable remarks, defend Monsanto, and praise their own poisonous chemicals along with GMO crops.
The aim of the “Let Nothing Go” program is “to leave nothing, not even Facebook or myspace comments, unanswered…” and the plaintiffs claim that Monsanto has been targeting virtually all forms of social media along with other online materials under this gumption. Even comments on social networks that only mention the potential hazards of things like glyphosate or genetically modified vegetation have been targeted by Monsanto’s trolls.
Anti-GMO activists like Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, have been particularly susceptible to these types of attacks. Not surprisingly, Adams has been a prime target for GMO trolls: The Genetic Literacy Project and other shills have released hit pieces on him and other activists – all with the purpose of attempting to discredit all of them and silence journalists who expose Monsanto’s nefarious operations.
The evidence revealed in these court papers definitely leaves Monsanto with a lot of explaining to do. However it appears as if they are already losing in the courtroom of public opinion. (RELATED: Learn more about Monsanto in MonsantoMafia.com)
