Mark Bittman’s article, “Banned From the Barn,” details his inability to get a tour of what really goes on in factory farms, as well as the movement in some places to actually ban videos and reporters from revealing what happens in such places (luckily there’s been no success in that area… yet…)

If mass production and factory farm conditions are what’s required to feed the nation’s appetite for meat, perhaps we should all back off on how much meat we’re consuming (or give up altogether the factory farm stuff until they make some changes); there are plenty of other sources of protein that work just as well.
