Great national broadcast. Probably opened a few eyes, as not a lot of this type of footage makes it on television.
Up to YEARS in prison for videos or photographs? Is that accurate? What did they do, add it to the AETA? Wow, we lose more and more freedom everyday, don't we? They should stop tip toeing around and get to the point - they want to get rid of us. Or at least shut us up.

Actually, the bill probably won't pass in Iowa..there's already massive public backlash from vegans and omnivores alike. A majority of Iowans feel there should be transparency in the meat industry. If it does pass it'll be more a liability than an asset to Animal Agribusiness and this whole debacle is probably causing a lot of google searches for "meat production."

Ironic how cavalier the newscaster was on the subject, but she never managed to ask the important question, why do we justify putting animals through this at all?

She's asked that question several times before, actually. She's the author of a pro vegan book among other things. She was focusing on this particular bill during this broadcast.
