Fakethrough! GMOs and the Capitulation of Science Journalism

Biotech

Good journalism examines its sources critically, it takes nothing at face value, places its topics in a historical context, and it values above all the public interest. Such journalism is, most people agree, essential to any equitable and open system of government. These statements about journalism are especially applicable to the science media. But while the media in general has recently taken much criticism, for trivialising news and other flaws, the science media has somehow escaped serious attention. This is unfortunate because no country in the world has a healthy science media.

Call for Anarchist Participation at March for Monsanto and Response to Delusional Statement

Biotech

The March Against Monsanto is obviously not the lynch pin that holds together the rotten corpse of capitalism, it isn't even the new Occupy or the next big thing. Although, anyone who may be paying attention knows that we are not far from the time where anti-authoritarian action will be necessary on a large scale. That the state has continually attacked, even at a time of lessened organizing shows that they are serious about dampening our ability to hinder their continuing efforts. They do not want another Occupy with the large amount of people radicalized from the last round.
