Social Media Activists Pressure CNN To Stop Ignoring Global March Against Monsanto
The power of alternative media and activists continues to influence the national debate, forcing propaganda news outlets to cover more real issues. The March Against Monsanto had activity in 400+ cities and saw millions of people turn out to voice their opposition to GMO food.
The mainstream media had done all it could to ignore it, but after the huge turnout, and the RT.com articlel, more news outlets started to pick it up. CNN ignored the march for as long as possible, but between requests on Twitter and Facebook, the network decided to address it.
