| In a blatantly biased, completely one-sided shallow hit piece on the film "Food, Inc", National Public Radio disgraced themselves today by running a piece on Weekend Edition Saturday that sounded like it just as well may have been created by a PR all-star team from Monsanto, Archer Daniels Midland and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. And if those names sound mighty familiar in connection to NPR, there's a reason for that. What a way for them to celebrate the spirit of independence on this day, btw...
The piece is 4 minutes and 27 seconds of tired old corporate propaganda under the guise of faux 'down-home' populism; from the title at the link, to the arrogant and provocative first sentence and completely untruthful last sentence of the summary, and all the way on down to the closing seconds of the interview. My favorite bit of the "report" was the accusation that when we 'attack' Monsanto, we are running 'the last generation of independent family farmers' off their land. I'm honestly surprised the piece stopped just short of calling us terrorists, but they must have run out of time. However, the piece is still full of enough crap to fertilize every field within listening distance of the NPR affiliates that aired it.
Shame on you, NPR, for running this type of "journalism".
