Those of us not on the East Coast can still catch tonight's (Sunday, June 22) "60 Minutes" on CBS. It airs at 7pm in most markets. There is a story on hog farms entitled "Pork Power." Two activists (thanks Judith and Teresa!) have said that though the focus in on the environment and corporate greed, the scathing report includes disturbing footage of living conditions - such as pigs confined in gestation crates.
For those who miss it, there is an extensive write-up on the 60 Minutes website at: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2003/...in559478.shtml
Please thank 60 Minutes for the story. Positive feedback will encourage similar coverage.
