We interviewed Jane Akre. After that, it landed in the Food Nation Radio Interview Archives:
I spoke with Jane Akre, former reporter for Fox News 13 in Tampa Bay. She spoke out after she was was fired for doing a story on bovine growth hormone. I listened to her explain how it is used in dairy products known as rBGH. However, her piece was never broadcast. In addition, the firing came from the top at Fox NY.
After that, she filed a lawsuit for wrongful termination.
Here’s her story with the information about what happened to her:
Jane Akre’s bio from her website:
Understanding the way the FDA approved rBGH is very similar to the way some medical devices slip through critical scrutiny by a federal regulatory system that sometimes feels more like the tail wagging the dog. Our story was told in the film, The Corporation, see a clip (here). My bio appears on Journalism Juice website (here).
