I'm doing about a 30 minute presentation on animal rights and my teacher told me to not use propaganda and she is one of those people that believes the animals eaten by people grow up on a cute small little farm.

I would like to avoid using sites such as PETA and other all animal liberation based sites.

I'd like to use sites like msnbc (which I have found many articles on already). If there are other sites (or books) that aren't as radical as peta then please let me know.

Also, I'm not sure what forum it was posted on, but someone also posted a site that had stuff regarding the bible and how it leans toward a vegetarian type diet. I know the topic will be brought up so I'd like to have some stuff to back up my arguement since I've never read the bible. Thanks. :)

Well, then why not start your presentation like that? Show a picture from a kid's book and explain that growing up, this is what we are taught about farms. But of course, how could we supply the huge amounts of animal products that are consumed every year with storybook family farms? (Americans, for example, eat 9 billion animals per year.)

Then you could go on to show the reality of the huge industrial farms that supply the market today.

While these websites have an opinion about factory farming, they are generally not looked down upon as PETA is.
