She Fooled Us: Organic-Lover Oprah Winfrey Now Supports Monsanto
How could one of the most outspoken supporters of organic foods suddenly take money from one of the most hated food companies in the communities which most support organic foods? We really thought Oprah Winfrey was with us and against them. According to recent findings, we were wrong.
It evidently all comes down to the all-powerful dollar. Oprah is not stupid when it comes to financial choices. She is very powerful financially. And frankly, she has a stake in the whole organic movement, as owner of an organic farm in Maui. She has trademarked “Oprah’s Organics.” Now she stands accused of accepting money from Monsanto, the oft-voted “Most Evil Company in the World.”
The Institute for Responsible Technology has posted on their Facebook page that Winfrey will be running an ad form Monsanto in 2015. Other activists have posted ads that have already run in “O” magazine. The ad features a happy, multi-ethnic blend of families meeting at the dinner table. It is from the company’s newly created multi-million dollar campaign to encourage discussion of genetically modified foods and the responsibility to feed the world in a sustainable manner.
