Monsanto Hiring Internet Trolls?

 n the last several months, it has come to light that one of Monsanto’s strategies for dealing with its online reputation involves paying people to say positive things about Monsanto, and attacking anyone who criticizes Monsanto. These paid Internet trolls pounce on doctors or anyone who speaks out against Monsanto.
Monsanto is just one of many companies that have been reported to use this tactic in maintaining their image.
Reportedly, Monsanto (and companies like Monsanto) have dedicated “entire departments” to trolling scientists, doctors and “discrediting” those who oppose them. These Internet warriors argue on behalf of multi-billion dollar corporations for 8 hours a day.
