It doesn’t happen often, I work really hard to make sure what appears in SR is correct, but it does happen: I get facts wrong. And when I do, there is nothing to do but admit it and correct it.
Yesterday i published a list of companies supposedly owned by Monsanto. Several readers wrote to tell me they had previously seen this list and it was not accurate. Two hours of searching and checking revealed two things: First, this list has been reprinted so many times many assume it is correct, but my readers were correct; it is not accurate. Second, actually putting together a list of the companies owned by Monsanto is extremely difficult.
Monsanto owns companies, that own companies, that own companies, and they are clearly not interested in seeing an accurate list assembled. So I don’t really have a list with which to correct yesterday’s list. I’m sorry.
If anyone does have such a list, and can send me the URL I would appreciate it, but I also don’t want to be embarrassed twice so it needs to be a fully documented list.
