Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Clarification of the term "fusion" as in Fusion GPS. - the people and money behind the British 'Dodgy Dossier" of MI6 agent Christopher Steele. Gathering dirt on political adversaries ... quite similar to "chatacter assassination".

Revealed: how Monsanto's 'intelligence center' targeted journalists and activists

Monsanto operated a "fusion center" to monitor and discredit journalists and activists, and targeted a reporter who wrote a critical book on the company, documents reveal. The agrochemical corporation also investigated the singer Neil Young and wrote an internal memo on his social media activity and music.

The records reviewed by the Guardian show Monsanto adopted a multi-pronged strategy to target Carey Gillam, a Reuters journalist who investigated the company's weedkiller and its links to cancer. Monsanto, now owned by the German pharmaceutical corporation Bayer, also monitored a not-for-profit food research organization through its "intelligence fusion center", a term that the FBI and other law enforcement agencies use for operations focused on surveillance and terrorism.
