By now everyone’s heard of “fake news.” But there’s another equally insidious form of journalism: fake opinions.
Fake opinions are opinion pieces, or op-eds, published under the name of someone who purports to be an “independent” scientist, expert or academic, but who is actually spreading propaganda for companies like Monsanto—and usually being paid to do it.

And Newsweek just published his latest.
Most consumers think of organic food as being better for their health, and organic farming being better for the environment. But there’s another good reason to support organic food and farming: It’s better for rural economies and communities.
