Fox News reporters Steve Wilson and Jane Akre uncovered the fact that most of the milk in the USA and across some parts of the world is unfit to drink, due to Monsanto’s rBGH or POSILAC, which has proved to be a cancer-causing growth hormone. The story was killed after pressure from the corporation that developed it – Monsanto – which is affiliated with top Fox advertisers. The station asked the journalists to change the story. When they refused, Fox offered to pay them to keep quiet before finally firing them and refusing to air their report.
