Stephen Colbert took on every GMO hating person’s least favorite company: Monsanto. In this two part bit on “The Colbert Report”, the host discusses the genetically modified wheat found in Oregon that hasn’t been produced since 2005. Monsanto claims they are mystified as to how it got in this farmer’s field. But the company could be facing criminal prosecution and a fine of one million dollars for its discovery. As Colbert jokes, Monsanto will probably made that amount in the time it takes you to watch one of his four-minute clips.

See below for the full story on the problem with this strain of wheat, why Japan has canceled its wheat order with the state of Oregon (potentially costing them millions of dollars), and how Monsanto somehow can’t be sued for a period of six months thanks to some “lucky” legislation.
