Docs Show How Monsanto Crushes Dissent with Thousands of Paid Trolls

• by Christina Sarich

Pre-trials for over 50 lawsuits in the US District Court in San Francisco have unearthed Monsanto's dirty little secret – aside from the Plaintiffs' claim that the herbicide Round Up caused their non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

It seems Monsanto has been hiring, through third parties, thousands of Internet trolls to counter negative comments about their products and business practices, and to promote their company with pseudo-scientific reports downplaying the probable risks of glyphosate, as well as the "inert" ingredients in their best-selling pesticides.

If you're a savvy reader, you can see evidence of a pointed disinformation campaign. There are even trolls and shills that dismiss the "Monsanto Shill Syndrome." These people say hateful things about the Food Babe, Moms Against Monsanto, GMO-whistleblowers, organic farmers, et al.
