"An Animal's Place," "....Mindful Meat Eating"

FARMED ANIMAL WATCH ALERT
Sponsored by Animal Place, the Association of Veterinarians for Animal Rights, Compassion in World Farming, The Fund for Animals, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and United Poultry Concerns.

"An Animal's Place," is the cover story of this week's New York Times Magazine. Author Michael Pollan's last cover article was "This Steer's Life." See: http://www.farmedanimal.com/Newsletters/Newsletter61.htm The current article attempts to persuade readers that both humans and nonhuman animals benefit more from alternative animal production than from humans adopting a vegetarian diet. This lengthy article is so full of sophistry that the magazine should, as a matter of journalistic integrity, grant equal time to a counter article.
