A few weeks ago there was a Slog post about a PETA publicity action
that generated an uproar over the possibility of children being shown images of animal abuse that is inflicted during the raising and slaughtering of animals for human consumption.
I wonder if Slog has any outrage for the animal abuse itself
? Today's Democracy Now!
features coverage of cruel treatment inflicted on animals at farms and at dog rearing operations, as well as coverage of new legislation which aims to outlaw the undercover documentation of such illegal abuses. These "Ag-Gag laws" have also recently been covered in the NY Times
Does Slog have any concern about the abuse of animals? Does Slog have any concern about the attempts to silence journalists who document this abuse?
Or do you only get your knickers in a bunch when people show you images of the animal abuse that your money is paying for?
