This is a perfect example of how the media lies every day.
Topic: GMO labeling – this has been a hot button issue and the reason is simple.
Q: Why would any thinking person remove clear and honest labeling for the food we eat?
A: Some of our elected officials (Obama) have been getting kickbacks from big food industries in return for passing tyrannical laws.
GMO’s have been linked to cancer in lab animals. Between 75 and 80 percent of our foods now contain genetically engineered ingredients, The AP reports.
Believe the studies or not, like GMO’s or not, the fact is that over 90 percent of Americans demand CLEAR GMO labeling. And why not? Information is a good thing. This is not North Korea…yet. So something must be done, or appear to be done.
So Obama Signs Bill Mandating GMO Labeling! Yay! Good for Obama as you can read right here on your trusted ABC news:
Here is a sample from the comment section:
GMOs are toxic, glyphosate is toxic, pretty much everything Monsanto has ever produced is poison. Not a company I want to dominate our food supply. Three cheers for President Obama!
Not so fast. The fact is what you read above is as close to a blatant lie as you can get. The “labeling” will NOT be clear. It will be in the form of a hidden QR code:
Here is the truth:
President Obama Signs the Disastrous Federal GMO-Labeling Bill, Putting the Future of Organic in Danger
“President Obama signed the sham GMO-Labeling bill (S. 764) which will allow, among many other things, companies to use hidden QR codes instead of clear GMO labels on a food product’s packaging.
This bill is so discriminatory and so poorly written that it potentially violates several amendments of the Constitution. Additionally, it even puts the integrity of the organic seal in real jeopardy.”
President Obama signs bill that forever exempts Big Food from placing GMO labels on food packages
“What is arguably the most troubling aspect of this bill is that while almost every single organic consumer organization fought this bill, the organic industry’s leading trade organization [believed the media hype] and praised the bill and lobbied for it to pass.” – Max Goldberg of Organic Food Industry Group
Even worse, the real intent of the bill is to abolish the clear GMO labeling law currently in effect in VT, ME, CT and AK, and prohibit any other state from passing labeling laws, like the one pending in Massachusetts that is cosponsored by 154 of 200 members of the legislature.
But the gullible liberals that still depend on these liberal news sources will be satisfied. That is all that matters.
