Is there any possible way this could be true?
"This is an accusation... an assertion. This isn't 'Deep Throat' here, is it?" Rachel said with a laugh, "Unless (the original author) or one of his associates is willing to do a great deal more work going into this, it seems like we have better things to do than pass on rumors that appear to have no foundation. Of course, if he could come up with names, and dates, and what the corporations were actually doing -- that would change things."
No one is saying large corporations, especially those who peddle GMOs, are free from sin. But such an enormous accusation, that doesn't even discuss theories on how the alleged perpetrators were able to contaminate so much meat in the first place, is silly at best, and irresponsible at worst.
Rachel summed it up, succinctly.
"Before anyone takes it seriously, the burden of proof is on him -- or anyone -- to come up with some actual evidence. Before that, it can't be believed."
After all, if we buy into these rumors... haven't the bioterrorists already won?
