This week (April 23, 2015) Dr. Oz did something on his show that he stated he has never done before: criticize other doctors in his profession in public. He stated that he was compelled to do so after a vicious smear campaign was waged against him by corporate-sponsored doctors allegedly tied into the GMO biotech food industry.

Dr. Oz had no choice but to take on publicly, via his TV show, 10 doctors who signed a letter calling for his removal from Columbia University Medical school. None of the doctors attacking him in the letter were from Columbia University, where Dr. Oz says he has “proudly” served on their faculty for almost 20 years.

So Dr. Oz chose investigative reporter Elisabeth Leamy to uncover just who these doctors are who attacked him, and reveal their conflict of interest and ties to the biotech GMO industry. You can watch the report here.

Natural News First to Uncover Doctors’ Ties to Criminal Activity and Biotech

For those of us in the alternative media, Leamy’s report did not reveal too much new that had not already been uncovered in the alternative media, particularly by Mike Adams at Natural News. Natural News actually goes into far more detail exposing these ten doctors and the forces behind them, in Mr. Adam’s April 17th article, Vicious attack on Dr. Oz actually waged by biotech mafia; plot to destroy Oz launched after episode on glyphosate toxicity went viral.

Here are some excerpts from the Natural News article:

In a recent episode that went viral, Dr. Oz discussed the toxicity of the biotech industry’s favorite pesticide “glyphosate” — a dangerous chemical that even the World Health Organization now admits likely causes cancer.

In response to this episode, the so-called “Monsanto Mafia” went berserk with all their usual character assassination tactics, and now they’ve come up with a contrived plot — a campaign of intimidation and character smearing — to try to silence Dr. Oz by destroying his credibility.

This plot to destroy Dr. Oz originates with all the usual “Monsanto Mafia” suspects such as Henry Miller, the indignant biotech puppet and Stanford biotech operative who helped run disinformation campaigns and fake science front operations for Big Tobacco. See the full details on Henry Miller here.

Also signing the attack letter against Dr. Oz was Dr. Gilbert Ross, executive director of the American Council on Science and Health — a shady industry front group that spreads biotech disinformation and lies under the false label of “science.”

Dr. Ross is a convicted criminal and Medicaid fraud artist. He was “convicted of racketeering, mail fraud and conspiracy,” and was “sentenced to 47 months in jail, $40,000 in forfeiture and restitution of $612,855” in a scheme to defraud the Medicaid system, reports the U.S. Right to Know campaign in a page describing the ACSH’s sleazy practices. See the Sourcewatch entry on the ACSH here.

These are the very same people whose circles of “Monsanto Mafia” character assassins include Jon Entine, a former Forbes.com writer and American Enterprise Institute research fellow who also violently choked his wife in front of their daughter, according to the court documents linked below. Entine has ties to the American Council on Science and Health, and has even authored quack science publications for them such as a booklet called “Scared to Death” which claims atrazine is totally harmless. (All these biotech mafia operatives repeat the same lies over and over again, claiming agricultural chemicals are completely harmless.)

The attack letter against Dr. Oz was actually based on Dr. Oz’s coverage of glyphosate and GMOs. That’s what enraged the “Monsanto Mafia” to push forward with an attempt to totally destroy the reputation of Dr. Oz.

It’s the same tactic the industry has used against every activist, author, scientist, doctor and news publisher who questions the safety of GMOs and glyphosate. There are countless cases where publishers have also been threatened and intimidated into silence over their coverage of GMOs, glyphosate and the toxicity of Roundup herbicide.

The “Monsanto Mafia” has even infiltrated and taken over Wikipedia, turning it into a corporate-run disinfo site dominated by paid operatives who vandalize pages to support the profits of corporations like Monsanto. A new website called Wikipedia Warning is now calling for a Warning label to be placed on all Wikipedia pages to warn the public how the encyclopedia has been taken over by corporate operatives. A Kickstarter campaign also hopes to raise enough money to publish a book detailing Wikipedia’s lies and disinfo attacks on the healing arts.

What we are really seeing with this latest attack on Dr. Oz is not “science” but “racketeering.” In fact, if any group in America should be arrested and tried under the RICO act, it’s the biotech mafia and its network of paid-off scientists (like Henry Miller), disinfo operatives and character assassins (like Jon Entine). These racketeers have infiltrated the media (such as Forbes.com), non-profit groups (American Enterprise Institute), universities (George Mason University), Wikipedia, medical journals and a long list of other entities that wield influence in society. Their tactics include intimidation and threats, character assassination, buying off scientists, spreading wildly false information about anti-GMO activists, and even publishing the home addresses of targeted individuals who they hope will be killed.

The ACSH is at the center of all this, and the organization has on its board people like Dr. Paul Offit, the whacko vaccine fanatic who claims injecting pregnant women with aluminum is good for the developing fetus! Offit fits perfectly with the ACSH group of malicious chemical pushers whose actions condone the mass poisoning of the human population with deadly chemicals and toxic metals.

Mainstream Media Gives Corrupt Doctors a Free Pass

Dr. Oz invited on to his show Dr. Joel Fuhrman to discuss the implications of this corporate-sponsored attack against Dr. Oz. Dr. Fuhrman is a well-known medical doctor who specializes in what he calls “Nutritional Medicine,” and is the author of several best-selling books on nutrition and fasting. The Dr. Oz episode with Dr. Fuhrman can be viewed online here.

Dr. Fuhrman stated that these attacks against Dr. Oz were not simply personal attacks against him, but against all physicians who dare to question and not take the standard “party line” to support the “most favored industry group” of the day. He called these attacks “anti-American” and “anti-freedom.”

When Dr. Oz asked Dr. Fuhrman what “disappointed him the most” over what had happened the past several days since these attacks came out, Dr. Fuhrman expressed his huge disappointment in how the mainstream media handled everything. He called it “sloppy and dangerous journalism.” Dr. Fuhrman accused the mainstream media of not doing background checks on these doctors, and not publishing accurate data.

However, is Dr. Fuhrman accurate? Was this “sloppy journalism” or simply “paid journalism” to carry out the corporate agenda of the biotech industry and their desire to censor free thinking and opposing views to GMOs and glyphosate?

The Dr. Oz show is a syndicated television show picked up on many mainstream media networks with huge corporate advertisement. Surely his show will now grow in popularity after this latest attack against him, but will corporate mainstream media continue to air his show?

Time will tell, but in the meantime, the best source for exposing corporate corruption in the health industry remains in the alternative media. The alternative media is likely to be the only place you will read or hear the other side of the story on controversial topics such as vaccines, GMOs, glyphosate, and many other controversial topics. The mainstream media refuses to cover both sides of these issues, so their views will continually need to be balanced by the alternative media.
