Monsanto lobbyist refuses to drink weed killer on live TV by Ben Geier @FortuneMagazine 12:36 PM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Google Plus Linkedin Share icons In a preview clip of an upcoming French documentary, Monsanto lobbyist Patrick Moore is seen telling a journalist that it’s completely safe for humans to drink large amounts of Roundup, a weed killer made by the company. When offered a glass, though, he declined, saying he was neither “stupid” nor an “idiot.” During the 2014 fiscal year, net sales of agricultural productivity products for Monsanto was $5.1 billion, an increase of $594 million year-over-year. That increase was driven by sales of Roundup and other herbicides. Moore’s controversial interview comes after a report from the World Health Organization linking Roundup to cancer. Monsanto denies that link and has demanded a retraction. The company has yet to issue any comment about the lobbyist’s interview. The agrochemical company is no stranger to ill will: Monsanto ranked as the fourth most-hated company in America earlier this year. For more about Moore’s TV appearance, head to TIME.
