Let's look at some stuff.
Slave labor, specifically child labor. In 2012 Nestle corporation announced that they were going to end the practice of child slave labor in the production of cocoa in the African country of Cote de Ivorie. The Ivory Coast for those with older globes. Their plan, "The Nestle Cocoa Plan" entailed building schools for communities, requiring those processors to certify that no slaves did the labor and the big one, providing over a million new cocoa trees for the communities there. And of course Nestle wanted to capitalize on their great spirit and make their "Crunch" bar into the dream product with labeling that defined their acheivements in their humanitarian endeavors. Nice stuff. Except it is all a bunch of hooeey. The Ivory Coast provides about 15% of the cocoa for Nestle, and their plan does little, well, it does nothing to stop slave labor in other regions. What does the worldwide media say about all of this.
- ABC News - a search for Nestle child labor or slave labor brings up nothing. A search for Nestle itself brings up all the gross stuff about horsemeat in their canned crap, but nothing about child labor, nor anything about the company destroying indigenous populations by destroying water supplies.
- CBS News - same searches, nothing regarding child labor. There is a very nice CBS report about how Nestle announced they would not use cloned meat in any of their products. At this time. But nothing about child labor.
- NBC News - same searches, nothing. Well, nothing bad other than the usual recalls for glass in stuff and horsemeat.
- Fox News - are you surprised to hear, same thing?
What about Giles-Eric Seralini? Seralini is a molecular biologist teaching at the University of Caen since 1991. This is the guy that has been on the forefront of effects of the endocrine system and related research for a couple decades. He is, or was, respected in his field, and his research up until he dared to go up against the all powerful Monsanto corporation, has been unquestionable. Now however, not so much. He is a contributor to numerous scientific rags and has been published extensively in the science community for years. No one has ever heard about him until 2012 when he discovered that feeding GM corn laced with residual Roundup as is normally available in the marketplace, causes cancerous tumors in rats. If you go to the major news sites and search for Seralini, you find....
- ABC News - absolutely nothing
- CBS News - the most information available. A two paragraph blurb about the report and of course how Monsanto says it was poorly done, and a second article about how the research story was retracted by the publisher.
- NBC News. - the story about the retraction only, and that was slanted. It was almost horizontal.
- Fox News - reported the story about the report after it was published, but nothing else. Nothing.
I guess the big deal here is that we just don't know what else is going on the world, because we aren't told about it. We are the mushroom sheeple. Fed shit, kept in the dark and led down the path that our masters want us to go.
But it isn't a conspiracy in anyway.
