Report: Monsanto Ran Spying and Intimidation Campaign Against Critics

Aug 09, 2019

An explosive new report by The Guardian reveals that U.S. agribusiness giant Monsanto ran a “fusion center” to surveil and discredit journalists and activists who publicly criticized or wrote damning reports about Monsanto’s weed killer Roundup. Documents show Monsanto collected extensive intelligence on the legendary singer-songwriter Neil Young, paid Google to promote search results that cast critics unfavorably, and contacted at least one reporter’s editor in hopes of having her fired. Later in the broadcast, we’ll speak to that reporter, Carey Gillam, as well as Gary Ruskin of the group U.S. Right to Know, which was also targeted by Monsanto.
