January 15, 2014

Mother Jones contributing writer Tom Philpott explains what GMOs actually are, what are industry claims about GMOs, why measuring the health effects of GMO foods is difficult, dangerous implications of GMO on the very idea of food, the danger of food patent rights, how the agriculture companies failed to deliver innovation through GMO innovations, why GMOs lead to more intensive industrial agriculture and the real way to cut the use of chemicals in farming.

On The Fun Half: Senate Republicans screw the long term unemployed, Stuart Varney again shows he is a sociopath, Republicans refuse to accept evolution, ethically challenged Republican strategist Frank Luntz is depressed, Republican Senate candidate complains there are enough Muslim villains in movies and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
