    Earlier this year, Mr. Michael Pollan was nominated for an Oscar on a documentary full of lies. Not every documentary film sticks with the full, straight to the point facts/truth. There isn’t a law that states that. For this movie, Food Inc., is filled with lies about America’s farmers and food suppliers. How can a topic that can be so strongly focused on, be blown so out of proportion based on these lies? What can we as farmers do with this situation?
