In the video above, Fox‘s Goldberg admits there are no long-term studies on human beings, but that all independent lab tests involving animals are showing atrocious liver damage, kidney problems, and after just three generations of being fed a GMO diet, hamsters are basically sterile. And those are just a few of the health hazards that independent studies are showing. The hosts of the show point out that the main problem isn’t just that GMOs are not labeled, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Even if labeling were to occur, it doesn’t change the fact that GMOs are spreading uncontrollably around the world, contaminating non-GM crops and wild plants.

So what gives? The Democratic Party is strong supporter of Monsanto and other manufacturers of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). The most notable example is President Barack Obama. However, many Republicans in congress also support the industry. This Fox report ends a planned virtual black out by the propaganda news organizations, such as Fox itself, the Wall Street Journal, the Oregonian, the Washington Post and all the other US members of the propaganda network that are erroneously called news organizations. Perhaps the Fox report signifies a breach in the ranks of the 1 percent on this issue. Maybe a member of the 0.05 percent has been denied the opportunity of getting in on the profitable end of the GMO industry. Could this report be their revenge? Who knows?

The important point of this report is that a few more Americans now know that GMOs are poisons, and that the US people are guinea pigs in this not so grand experiment.

Nowadays, and perhaps for as much as thirty years in the past, major news organization investigations into political and economic crimes has been extinct, more or less. The New York Times, like the Washington Post and all other American news organizations, have become more and more propaganda organizations on behalf of the 1 percent and against the 99 percent. Fox News is the most spectacular example of a propaganda organization.

The formula works like this. The propaganda organization will side with the sentimentalities of its main body of readers on social issues, while simultaneously advocating economic policies that redistribute income from the 99 to the 1 percent. In addition, the propaganda organizations will edit and omit any news that will prove their positions wrong on economic issues. And they follow this formula unfailingly. So they’ll advocate, for example, for free trade agreements that devastate the US economy and redistribute income from the 99 to the 1 percent, and they’ll take the side of corporations, such as Monsanto, in advocating for Genetically Modified Foods against, say, organic farmers. They’ll also refuse to publish any studies that show the harmful effects of GMOs, or relegate the reporting to little snippets on page 30, or give it 4 seconds late on the 1 am news hour.

They’ll protect politicians such as Wall Street Senator Ron Wyden, by not mentioning how many jobs the senator has voted to export via free trade agreements in the state he’s supposed to represent, which is Oregon. That’s one of the ways how these so-called news organizations serve the interest of corporate parasites against the interests of the USA as a whole.

The corporate propaganda machine is no longer a free press, and it hasn’t been for a long time.
