Bernie Sanders alleged that CBS once canceled an interview with him — because Monsanto, the agricultural tech giant, had threatened to sue the network.

During a town hall event here on Saturday night, a voter asked Sanders about Monsanto. Questions about agribusiness and genetically-modified food are not unusual at Sanders events, but on Saturday night the Vermont senator claimed his criticism of the industry and Monsanto’s objection caused CBS to cancel an interview:

. . . .I’ll never forget this. I was invited by CBS, not a small company, to appear on television to talk about why I was opposed to bovine growth hormone. CBS then called me up and said, ‘Well, Monsanto is threatening to sue us, so we can’t go on with it.’ They are very powerful.

Asked when this incident took place or for other details about the incident, Sanders campaign aides did not immediately offer any further information on Sanders’s recollection.
