When social scientists examined messaging in new media around GE crops, a few trends became apparent. Surprising evidence emerged that showed that the Russian Federation is actively participating in a campaign, here in the USA, to malign GE crops with a goal of influencing public opinion. In this week’s episode Dr. Shawn Dorius from Iowa State University talks about the recent findings. He describes a literal propaganda campaign designed for English-speaking countries. The apparent goal is to erode public trust in American agriculture, and influence opinion away from technology that Russia does not have.
