[This was originally titled “Way to interview a GMO anti-expert, CNN and posted 6/18.]
Of all the people CNN could have chosen for the ‘every day citizen’ comment in their little blurb about the recent GM wheat found in Oregon, they chose none other than Zen Honeycutt.  If you are unfamiliar with that name, go to Moms Across America March (MAAM) and you’ll see right away that she represents a busy activist group committed to ending all GMOs as we know them on planet earth. Like so many other similar groups, they hide behind the “right to know” mantra and demand labeling, but their real agenda is much more severe. Labeling is also not all they hide behind.
Convinced that GMOs are responsible for the ill health of their children, you know, autism, ADHD, allergies, asthma, obesity, cancer, etc., this group also hides behind the outwardly admirable position of momma bears protecting their cubs (who could find fault with that, after all?).
But this organization promotes a very strong agenda – organizing huge rallies, maintaining a vigorous social media presence, posting and reposting every piece of junk-science they come in contact with on their blog and facebook page. The new pig study? It’s there. They then delete any and all comments that challenge their narrow beliefs about the foods they feed their kids.
This is also the group that first circulated the now infamous Stunning Corn Camparison.
They know what’s best for everyone, after all. Read the latest blog post: Proof of GMO Harm. Here is just a bit of it for you if you don’t want to waste your time clicking (I don’t blame you):
Moms just know, do they? Zen, I am also a mom and I know that this is the biggest bunch of unsubstantiated sow manure I’ve ever seen. And you’re unnecessarily scaring people half out of their wits. Your uninformed and completely misguided opinions drove me away from the anti-GMO movement! 
Here is a link to the CNN piece that features Honeycutt via Keith Kloor’s Collide-a-Scape at Discover (which is a great read too!): Watch Out For Those Genetically Engineered Hamburger Buns!
Here is the full uncut interview with Honeycutt via her MAAM blog. The CNN crew is in her kitchen. This is the one to watch if you want to laugh, or maybe cry. Very little of what she said made it onto the actual piece, thankfully.
Really CNN? Really?
