From Gianni Ortiz:

The Non-organic Future

I don’t often pass on petitions but this particular story is a standout, above and beyond the generally failing state of independent journalism. If you’re inclined to let your local public radio station know that you would like Marketplace scrubbed from the roster—and perhaps replaced with some legitimate reporting like Democracy Now, Al Jazeera or Counterspin—you can contact WAMC here, or here (518)465-5233. You can find your local station here.

Marketplace is blocking further comments (those posted were almost entirely appalled by the blatant Monsanto paid for propaganda piece) but there was enough of a outcry that they publish a Note from the Editor.


Tell American Public Media: Report the facts, not anti-organic propaganda paid for by Monsanto.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
