BusinessWeek Online reports on a columnist sacked for taking money from Monsanto. Michael Fumento, who wrote for the Scripps Howard News Service, received $60,000 from the agbiz megacorporation. He apparently had a lot of kind words for the company, and failed to disclose his compensation. Fumento is also a senior fellow at the conservative Hudson Institute.
