Bernie Sanders has said that Monsanto threatened to sue CBS if they allowed him to appear on their network, due to his critical stance of the agricultural giant.
During a town hall on Saturday night, a voter asked Sanders about Monsanto and about GMO food, to which Sanders responded:
BYPASS THE CENSORS

Monsanto is a very, very powerful corporation. They are one of the leaders in food technology and basically working hard to transform our food system.
Let me tell you a funny story, or not so funny. In my state, a great dairy state, we have a lot of dairy cows. There was an effort to put what was called BGH, bovine growth hormone, which is a stimulant that makes cows produce cows more milk but is unhealthy. I was against that.
I’ll never forget this. I was invited by CBS, not a small company, to appear on television to talk about why I was opposed to bovine growth hormone.
CBS then called me up and said, ‘Well, Monsanto is threatening to sue us, so we can’t go on with it.’ They are very powerful.
Asked when this incident took place or for other details about the incident, Sanders campaign aides did not immediately offer any further information on Sanders’s recollection.
