Food Censorship & Misinformation

A fair and free press is critical for a thriving democracy; essential if the public and the politicians representing us are to make responsible choices and good policy.  Yet, even in  the most traditionally respected news and academic sources, we find misrepresentations in -- and even censorship of -- stories on food and agriculture. Building on the 2014 NESAWG plenary on food censorship, a group is forming to help expose examples of censorship and misinformation, that impact perceptions of sustainable farm and food systems.
