Award-winning journalist and public commentator Bill Moyers takes a bite out of ag-gag legislation on his popular blog What Matters Today. A broadcast journalist for more than four decades, Moyers has received more than thirty Emmys, two prestigious Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards, nine Peabodys, and three George Polk Awards.
In a comprehensive video outlining the efforts of the American Legislative Exchange Council to introduce model legislation designed to silence whistleblowers, Moyers harshly criticizes these bills that protect animal abusers and erode American civil liberties. The video prominently features numerous investigations by Mercy For Animals, including undercover footage exposing horrific animal abuse at Butterball turkey factory farms and Sparboe egg farms.
Watch the powerful video commentary here:
The silver lining to ag-gag legislation is that it has resulted in extensive mainstream media coverage of factory farming issues, throwing back the curtain on Big Ag and shining a bright light on the industry's sickening practices. And with the advent of social media and video sharing, there are fewer and fewer shadows for the animal agriculture industry to hide its criminal activities.
Here's How You Can Help Stop Big Ag Abuses:
Expose Factory Farm Cruelty - Please share this video with as many people as you can and help expose the cruel and corrupt practices of factory farming industries.
Choose Vegetarian - Each time we eat, we can choose kindness over cruelty. Adopting a diet free of meat, dairy, and eggs is the single most powerful action you can take to prevent needless cruelty to farmed animals. Visit ChooseVeg.com for free recipes, tips on making the switch, and more.
