"Fair and Balanced" is neither,
This review is from: Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You're Eating (Paperback)
Journalism has deteriorated to the point where one is supposed to "balance" the truth with lies, and pretend both have equal weight. The case against GMO's is damning, as is the case against Monsanto, and this book presents both with forthrightness and clarity. "Balancing" this information with industry propaganda is both ridiculous and unnecessary -- the industry ensures that most pieces written about it are written by cheerleaders. Genetic engineering is a woefully imprecise "science," and the UNwanted effects of inserting a gene from one species into another's genome -- with no idea of where the gene ends up or how many copies of it have been inserted -- can be quite harmful. This book is well worth reading.
