A few weeks ago I wrote about how when a now retired University of Illinois’ professor named Bruce Chassy received money from the US State Department to produce informational videos on genetically modified organisms (GMOs), he collaborated with Monsanto on the content.
Alternet also recently published an article detailing the conflicts of interest between Chassy and Monsanto, and how the professor spent years supporting Monsanto’s agenda without disclosing his financial ties to the company.
But if you think an “independent” public university professor taking government money to produce propaganda for a private company is bad, consider this:
The new spending bill2,3,4 actually calls for $3 million to be allocated for consumer education and outreach to “promote understanding and acceptance of” biotechnology.
