I had always considered my subscription to Time Magazine as a reliable source of news and information.
I had been outraged at their article written by Bryan Walsh, “The Real Cost of Cheap Food”. It was filled with bias, disdain and untruths of agriculture in America.
Time and writer Bryan Walsh have heard many complaints in regards to the published piece.
They, in an interview with AgriTalk on Monday August 31st confirmed that the article was indeed an opinion piece. Also in the interview they indicated that they felt their opinion is more important than the truth. Time also claims that the whole magazine is now opinion based and no longer a news magazine.
As a hard working dairy farmer and struggling to get through the worst economic crisis dairy farmers have faced since the depression, I do not have funds to afford “opinions”. For opinions I have blogs that have more fact that that negative, stereotyping a picture of what Time Magazine considers Agriculture.
The best part of blogs…they are free!
That is MY opinion!
