Tomorrow’s Oprah will feature an investigative report involving factory farming. Here’s a brief description of the show:
Lisa Ling Reports: How We Treat the Animals We Eat
Have you ever wondered what cage-free or free range really means? Lisa Ling takes a rare look inside some of America’s farms. Where does our food come from?
Considering how wide Oprah’s audience is, I am quite elated that she decided to do a show on factory farming. I highly doubt if masses of people will go veg upon seeing the show, but if mainstream America finally learns where their meat comes from, perhaps there will be an outcry large enough to put a stop to the suffering of farm animals.
I will check out Oprah tomorrow after work if I can (normally, I am home when her show is half-over), but I’d love to see open discourse and reviews from others who have seen the show. Discuss!
