Two Fox News ex-employees speak out about corruption
The Fox news employees, who were fired for refusing to distort a news story exposing cancer-causing drugs being found in cow's milk tell all.
Jane Akre and Steve Wilson reveal how the drug giant Monsanto was able to successfully pressure Fox Television executives to either distort or gag any negative reports about their drug Posilac 1 Step Bovine Somatotropin (rbST) - a growth hormone injected into cows to boost milk production.
rbST is a genetically modified drug created by inserting cow DNA into the DNA of E. COLI bacteria. The safety concerns were raised when Akre and Wilson uncovered that the FDA only did 90 days of testing on the drug using rat trials before it was allowed to be released on the market. The Canadian FDA equivalent, Health Canada raised serious concerns about the lack of testing on this product and possible cancer-causing properties of such drugs, which are able to be absorbed by the human body from drinking milk.
