"Farms, Lies and Videotape: Who gets to tell the story of America’s largest livestock farms?" is a report by the Ration about undercover videos by Humane Society employees and the ways the ag industry is trying to prevent them.
Especially good: At 4:40, when Iowa state Sen. Tom Rielly argues against the making of such videos because HSUS/the videographers are “going out and making all kinds of money attacking the industry that they don’t agree with.” This is definitely the most nonsensical “reasoning” I’ve heard yet. Yes, state Senator Rielly, what HSUS and (the very good-looking although that isn’t germane shut up) Cody Carlson are doing is financially profiting from egg producers’ systemic abuse of chickens. Is being a genius difficult?
Hey super-activist! How about a job at Change.org! »
What would you think about being the director of organizing for animal protection? You’ll have to “craft and execut[e] rapid-response campaigns” as you “oversee [Change.org’s] animal advocacy and organizing efforts across U.S. and the globe.” Sounds like something you can do? They’re taking resumes now!
