Submission + - Monsanto caught shilling through an Indian Daily (

icecoldkilla writes: Time Of India publsihed a story as news paid by Monsanto regarding the purpoeted benefits of its BT cotton. A competiting new paper the Hindu further investigated and revealed the truth that publsihed story was contrary to the facts. Facts such as Poor Indian Farmerss who have used BT cotton by Monsanto are not hugely benefitted by it as the story paints but atleast a dozen have committed sucide as relying on this varity increased their debts. Indian government recently stopped subsidies to Farmers due to World Bank pressures and paving way to companies like Monsanto to benefit at the cost of Farmers.
