Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (19 comments)
I just turned this program on and in the first minute the only true thing I heard was the fact that Monsanto will pursue its patents. I would never donate to a station that would present this fiction as truth. I just heard the person begging for $$ that it's "a little controversial" well no crap. When you try to pass of baloney science as science, it should be controversial. I have no connection with Monsanto or any seedstock company. What I have done is analyzed GMO grain to PPB levels and find NO DIFFERENCE chemically or nutritionally to legacy grains. I guess next it'll be HFCS you're lieing about. The guy talking right now (1.42 PM) sounds like some guy that would be selling magnets to purify your water. For a station connected with a premier science university, you should be ashamed for pandering to unscientific beliefs such as this.

I think we need an independent recount of our latest vote on this topic.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email and suggestion.  Proposition 105 lost by a wide percentage, so I doubt if there will be a recall.
I got to admit I was surprised by the election outcome.
All the Best,

This program is a total misrepresentation of the scientific evidence and most the of science being cited in this program has been discounted by the scientific community. You do no service to the your viewers by promoting such biased programming and promoting a point of view not supported by any reputable science.
CPT12 Response:
 I am assuming your email  refers to Gary Null’s Seeds of Death. You are not alone in your disapproval.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. Colorado Public Television does  take our  viewers comments seriously when planning future programming.

Seeds of Death is complete BS

Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (19 comments)
It should be criminal to air such shallow and non authoritative documentaries. This documentary is complete BS they cover no real facts and merely speculate of the possibility of GMO harm. They also leave out ALL of the benefits of GMO crops which far out way the negative aspects of GMO, which until proven otherwise remains at ZERO. Also fun food for thought; Most "real" farmers aren't authors on the side and the leading voice in this mess of non scientific rhetoric is the one and only Bruce Lipton the same guy that says he can control plants with his mind and the list of other guest speakers I wouldn't trust to walk my dog. As an adult you're free to believe what you want, but there are kids that watch these shows and don't have the tools that most adults have to verify fact from fiction, so please stop spreading this crap! Thanks :)

Where were you when this was an election issue here in California and Colorado. I didn't know anything about this until my sister in CA called me and told be about it. It would have been helpful to have seen your video BEFORE the election. The people here in Colorado are oxygen deprived and drugged. I couldn't believe it that these oxymorons voted NOT to label GMOs. Where were YOU!!!!
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  It was aired just before the elections.  Probably not as many times as we usually do, but it was aired.

Bravo on airing this broadcast: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs. I hope with airing this program more people will become aware of the harmful effects of GMOs and start doing more research on their own. We as a nation have to change back to the basic's of food production or become mutated ourselves. Thank you, DH

I am appalled that a so-called public station can, with impunity, broadcast blatant propaganda regarding an issue that is on the upcoming ballot. Unless you are planning to allow the other side, affirmed in recent articles in National Geographic, The Atlantic, and The New Yorker magazines, their air time, I consider this outright electioneering which is not acceptable to the FCC.

I have forwarded your comments to the producer of the show.

I have been watching your incredible programming. I find it astonishing that there are so many stupid, closed minded people that don't beleive the crisis of GMO's in our food. They should do more research on the subject, or shut up!! Why should they care, that we want real food again. Colorado has GMO labeling on the ballot for Nov. finally! Yeah!!! Please vote yes, so we have the choice to avoid GMO products, with labeling. You don't have to buy it if you disagree, but let us decide what we put into our bodies.
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your email.
It will be very interesting to see what the voters of Colorado decide on this issue. With the commercial airwaves filled with the Fracking issue and political candidate ads, I haven’t heard much on Prop 105.
Colorado Public Television will be airing a debate on the GMO issue as part of our Colorado Decides series Friday, October 3 at 7:00 pm on Channel 12.1. I hope you can tune in.
All the Best,

A quick check of Gary Null's credentials on Wikipedia reminds me of my dad's saying, "It is okay to lie, just as long as it is SO BIG it's the other guy's fault for believing it!

Wow, Seeds of Death is an amazing excerise in propaganda. Airing a film, such as this one, laden with inaccuracies and misleading information on Public TV is tremendously disappointing. Add the insane ramblings of the host and it is almost as tough to watch as a Fox news report.

Thank You Dr.Gary Null and CPT12, The destruction of our environment and ultimately ourselves, our children, grandchildren and all life on our beautiful planet is the most disturbing event to me, this saddens me beyond belief. The dumping of tons of herbicides, and pesticides in our soil is unconscionable. I would love to donate my money but have none at this time. I have just recently stopped drinking tap water and purchase my water, Dr. Nulls water filter is the best I have seen and I intend to purchase one in the future. I again thank you for CPT12 programming everyone needs to see Seeds of Death.

Thank you for your email.
It seems Americans are becoming more and more conscious of the food they eat and how it is produced.

Thank you for re-airing this ACCURATE well sourced documentary
Posted: August 3, 2014 by Jim Buckman
Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (19 comments)
Gary Null doesn't publicize information that can't be backup up and documented from known credible sources. It is important that people at least need to be informed regarding the sources of the food they eat by having the foods they consume labeled "contains GMO ingredients" or "GMO free". Most of the safety research on GMO's has been funded by the very corporations producing them with the stamp of approval coming from the FDA, which is headed by people who...wait for it...used to work for the very corporations producing GMO's. That sounds like a HUGE conflict of interest and I seriously doubt the credibility of anything coming from the FDA as a result. The "jury is out" regarding the independently verified long term safety studies of GMO's. The bottom line is that YOU, the American citizen, are being USED as a LAB RAT concerning your consumption of GMO-containing foods. Do you really want to be a lab rat helping to boost the profits of these huge multi-national corporations? Think about it. What to do you ask? Stay away from as much GMO as you possibly can for the time being. Right now, these giant corporations have paid millions of dollars to prevent labeling initiatives from becoming law. Think about it - if these products were REALLY safe, then why are these huge corporations spending so much money to prevent labeling? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this one out!!! How to avoid GMO's AND pesticides without GMO labeling: BUY ORGANIC. If the label says "certified organic" then by law, those products cannot contain ANYTHING GMO. By the way, the label jargon "All Natural" is 100% MEANINGLESS. Ignore it. Buy organic whenever possible.

recent airing of "Seeds of Death"
Posted: July 29, 2014 by Peter Olins
Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (19 comments)
I was shocked and horrified that CPT12 would choose to air such a radical movie as "Seeds of Death", which masquerades as a documentary about GMO foods. The amount of misinformation and propaganda in this movie was breathtaking. I seldom use the word "evil", but in this case, the blatant distortions in this movie will surely do harm, and CPT12 is clearly complicit. I have seen better-sourced material on the cover of the National Enquirer: what's next, a documentary about how all of Congress has been abducted by aliens and replaced by humanoid replicas? Public television should aspire to educating, as well as entertaining, the public: in the past I have been impressed by the efforts of public TV and radio across the country to act as an antidote to the low quality of the commercial media. Is there no-one in authority at your station who has even a rudimentary science education, or a rudimentary level of skepticism? If you cannot do even the most basic quality control of the kinds of information you present, then I question whether your station deserves to exist. A brief phone call to any of our excellent local Universities would have prevented this embarrassment. You owe all your viewers and donors a public apology. Peter Olins, PhD
