Here is the final court ruling in the case, all of her claims were ultimately rejected. Besides, who ever honestly thought the news was telling us the truth anyway. And a lot of the information being passed around is seriously skewed, what was supposedly being done "secretly" was not only legal but not being hidden at all. I dont like eating meat that is full of antibiotics and bgh and steroids, but look at the vioxx case, we have only ourselves to blame.

Chris, that link isn't working for me. And what do you mean, by "all her claims were ultimately rejected?" Maybe it's in that link.

Maybe so. But those are the facts.


http://www.organicconsumers.org/rbgh/akre022103.cfm

In overturning the jury on what amounts to a legal technicality, the court did not dispute the heart of Akre's
claim, that Fox pressured her to broadcast a false story to protect the broadcaster from having to defend the truth in court, as well as suffer the ire of irate advertisers.

Nonetheless, the station aired a report in wake of the ruling saying it was "totally vindicated" by the verdict.

Do you notice your sources always seem to benefit from a certain spin?

For some reason it only works if you copy and paste it. You could question the motive for what they did but from the little I have seen her claims were a little trumped up. And if they wanted the false story out that bad why not just have someone else do it, its not like there is any kind of copyright on news stories. And since it has been 3 years since that ruling was handed down I would say in that respect it is finished.
After a four-week trial, a jury found against Wilson on all of his claims. The trial court directed a verdict against Akre on her breach of contract claim, Akre abandoned her claim for declaratory
relief, and the trial court let her whistle-blower claims go to the jury. The jury rejected all of Akre’s claims except her claim that WTVT retaliated against her in response to her threat to disclose the alleged news distortion to the FCC

Doesnt really sound like Monsanto was pressuring anyone to me. Granted this was from their attorney, but they were still providing documentation to Akre about their "investigation."
The Monsanto officials and scientists who have been interviewed by Akre and Wilson or talked to them on the telephone have no confidence now in their ability to write a fair and unbiased story. Nevertheless, Monsanto has provided and will continue to provide them with relevant scientific documentation, all of which, by the way, thoroughly supports the safety of this product. Enlosed is a letter Monsanto sent yesterday by telecopy to Akre and Wilson. The referenced documents and materials also were sent yesterday by Federal Express.

I would think a clear conflict on interest should set off an alarm. Myself, I use multiple sources with different views and see where they intersect. For example, if the story is about Fox news then you cut them out as a source. Same with an organic consumer group or Wiki where the source is changing.
