Fundamentally at Odds with Reality

What a nice blog title - don't you think? "We live in a country in which many people live in information cocoons in which they only talk to members of their own party and read blogs of their own sect. They come away with perceptions fundamentally at odds with reality." By DAVID BROOKS

The CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation also known as the Communist Broadcast Centre) is such a cocoon. They recently did a story on "Factory Farms" as they call people who do a wonderful job of providing us with food in the most humane manner possible.

What these cocooners don't know is reality. They hide in their own corners and spew pontifications galore about how terrible it is that caring farmers take care of chickens and pigs in a clean environment that help these animals live their short lives happy and carefree. They don't know that a contented animal is a happy animal. An animal that does not have to freeze their ears and tails off in the great wonderful harsh outdoors is much happier than the one that wallows in its own excrement. And gets every disease, and loses its feet due to frost in the wonderful free range hell of the great Canadian winter. Free range animals get worms and parasites and when people eat that meat they get parasites. What a wonderful thought!

Check it out at here at CBC

Why isn't there a rule about fair and honest reporting? They need to give voice to the people that know what they are talking about. The pictures on the web have no connection with modern farming methods. I have seen pigs and chickens in the wild. If we wanted to raise all of them free range, there would not be a blade of green anywhere in the world. The pigs and chickens would have destroyed it all with their rooting and scratching. We and the pigs would all be starving to death. That would be better somehow?

Read the comments that are posted after their story. Clearly this one-sided drivel is serving the propaganda needs of cocooners that hide their heads in the sands of reality.

Where is balanced reporting?

Those of you that are in the know need to try to straighten out some of these ignoramuses. Clearly there are many people who are more eloquent than I.
