Maine joined Connecticut this week as the second state in the nation to sign a genetically modified food labeling law, but you may not have heard much about it because the mainstream media hasn’t really said anything about it.
No MSNBC. No CNN. No ABC. No other major news outlets are touching this story. Why?
Well, I guess that speaks volumes about who owns the mainstream news and what their agenda really is, doesn’t it?
Connecticut became the first state to sign a law requiring that foods be labeled if they contain genetically modified ingredients back in December.
Proponents of the bill said the provision would quell concerns about an almost-certain lawsuit by industry groups and Monsanto, which vowed to challenge the laws in Maine and Connecticut on the basis that they violate the free speech and interstate commerce provisions of the U.S. Constitution.
Yep. That’s right. States aren’t going at it alone because apparently they are scared of being sued by Monsanto.
Also, knowing what is in your food is apparently somehow unconstitutional.
Monsanto threatened to sue the state of Vermont back in spring 2012 over even thinking about passing a GMO labeling bill.
So, I guess that means Monsanto and mega food companies are now running the show and making all the rules, I’m sorry, laws, and those laws (or lack thereof) say you don’t get to know what’s in your food.
