Yes! Magazine describes some of the strengths and drawbacks of online activism. I have some interest in this subject, as you might imagine. To sum: best to couple online activism with volunteering and organizing. I know, I know.
Newt Gingrich supporter pleads guilty to 36 counts of voter fraud. Which Project Veritas made a half-hour video about, right? No?
At least two studies find that a Monsanto Bt pesticide damages folks' red blood cells. Admittedly, when Monsanto set out to make a pesticide with the Bacillus thuringiensis bacterium in it, scientists thought Bt only affected insects, but alas, apparently not.

The Chipotle restaurant chain becomes the first U.S. restaurant chain to label genetically-modified organisms in its food. They'll be phasing GMOs out, too, so overall they've managed to outclass both Whole Foods (who'll get GMO labeling done by 2018) and Target (who'll phase GMO out of their Simply Balanced brand by 2014). I may have to visit a Chipotle again soon.
Finally, you can now find FactCheck.org debunking no less than 39 of our stupidest and most persistent political rumors in one spot.

After all, you can make a strong case against the Obama Administration without resorting to any of the bullshit described at the link.
