Dr. Bob Arnot nails it on CNN: Attack on Doctor Oz was astroturfed by sleazy "industry henchmen" with ties to biotech

Dr. Bob Arnot

(NaturalNews) In a stunning piece of real journalism that nails the story behind the story, former NBC Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Bob Arnot went on CNN to expose the truth behind the quackpot attacks against Doctor Oz. This is the truth that, almost without exception, every other mainstream media outlet intentionally and shamelessly buried over the last three days.

The video, viewable here on CNN.com, was aired at 11:30 Eastern Time today.

It's one of the most refreshingly honest pieces of video journalism I've seen come out of CNN in a long time. Yes, I'm critical of CNN most of the time, but when they accurately nail an important story like this, they deserve recognition for it! More importantly, Dr. Bob Arnot deserves kudos for being willing to take a stand for the truth about what he calls "industry henchmen" involved in "astroturfing" attacks on Oz.

Here's a partial transcript from the video: (bold emphasis added)

Dr. Bob Arnot: ...the most interesting part of this is this letter. First of all, it's not from the Columbia faculty. It's from ten physicians, all of whom have industry ties. And if you look carefully at the letter, what it's really about is that the industry is furious that he has taken on genetically modified crops. So you basically have industry henchmen who are after Dr. Oz here. One of them in fact, head of the American Council on Science and Health, spent some time in federal prison for Medicaid fraud, so I'd be very careful about who has written this letter.

Host: So perhaps you're saying the initial media coverage of this story -- it really came up on Friday, became bigger here over the weekend -- is being misleading, because it's not addressing exactly who these physicians are.

Arnot: They do this kind of thing all the time; they're called "astroturf groups." That is, they appear to be grassroots groups representing real consumers, but in fact, they are the henchmen of industry here, and that's what you're looking at with this letter. The media often gets swept up by this, they say, "this is a great story," they get swept up by it, they report it, but they don't look at who wrote that letter.

What Dr. Bob Arnot is explaining is almost word for word what we first published here on Natural News last Friday in an article entitled Vicious attack on Dr. Oz actually waged by biotech mafia; plot to destroy Oz launched after episode on glyphosate toxicity went viral.

That article went viral and we followed up with another article calling out the chronically lazy mainstream media for utterly failing to fact check the signers of the letter attacking Oz. As I wrote in this article, the attack was organized by a group that's a key operative of the so-called "Monsanto Discredit Bureau." An entire bureau exists to do nothing but discredit every single person who calls for GMO labeling or discusses glyphosate toxicity.

Is CNN the first mainstream media outlet to report the TRUTH?

In the world of alternative media, Natural News was of course the first to report all this. But CNN appears to now be the first mainstream media outlet to cover this truth, beating out all the other lamestream media groups that primarily function as puppet news theater hoaxers parroting "official sources" and corporate propaganda.

The real truth in all this is that glyphosate causes cancer, GMOs are a crazy genetic experiment unleashed on our world, and the truth of all this is being systematically suppressed by the "Monsanto Mafia" running its heavily funded discredit campaign. It's about time CNN finally reported the beginning of the truth on all this.

No doubt there's a legitimate Pulitzer Prize in store for whoever uncovers all the details on the "Monsanto Mafia." That is, if there are any journalists remaining who can remember what courage means... (Sharyl Attkisson, anyone?)

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
