Last week, we reported that the Sacramento Bee had run an opinion piece by Dan Morain full of lies about the California ballot initiative campaign to label GMOs. We asked Bytes readers to set the record straight by reading our rebuttal and posting comments to the article on the Sacramento Bee website.
A flood of comments ensued, prompting the Bee to shut down the comment function. Then, on Saturday, Stuart Leavenworth, the editorial page editor, published a piece attacking the OCA that, like Morain’s editorial, parrots Monsanto’s talking points with no regard for the truth.
Again, we ask you to read Leavenworth’s article and our rebuttal, then post comments defending freedom of speech and our right to know what’s in our food.
