I based this chapter primarily on the video: “Broadcast Blues.” This is an Emmy Award Winning video written, produced and starred in by Sue Wilson. It explains in detail what the “Fairness Doctrine” should be, and how many administrations have shredded this doctrine to get control of the Main Stream Media. I recommend that you get her video. It will open your eyes.
Jane Akre and Steve Wilson were investigative reporters at Fox station WTVT in Tampa Florida.
Fox News reporters Steve Wilson & Jane Akre uncovered a disturbing piece of information after Fox television told them to cover any story they wanted, and to ask hard questions for a their new show called: The Investigators
Jane and Steve chose a story on growth hormones in Florida’s (and the nations) milk supply called: BGH. This hormone was manufactured by Monsanto Corporation and was tested for only 90 days before it hit the market.
Then it was introduced into the milk supply via cattle injections (as Monsanto claimed) in order to produce more milk. They advertised to farmers that this will give the farmers – “MORE REVENUE” from their milk producing livestock.
Truthfully reported by Jane Akre and Steve Wilson, the hormones fed to cows to produce more milk – gets into our daily milk supply and causes human health hazards. Human Health Hazards that are virtually ignored!
In the late 1990’s, you will see how this particular court case awarded both Jane Akre and Steve Wilson $425,000 for wrong doings by Monsanto (through the whistle blower status).
Miraculously early in 2000, the court rescinded their “Original” decision to award $425,000 for wrong doings by Monsanto! The NEW COURT RULING STATES: FALSIFYING the NEWS IS NOT actually AGAINST the LAW!
The courts reason: “The NEWS is like “ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION” – So the TRUTH IS NOT RELEVANT Because of the “Entertainment Value”
