Great Oprah show

Oprah had an entire show devoted to veganism today. Michael Pollan and Kathy Freston were on. Both have great books out there. The piece on the slaughter, brought to us by Cargill, was a bit disturbing, but limited in what was shown. And I am sure, edited and controlled, to only show us what they want us to see. After all, they knew the cameras were coming. The strange thing about the slaughter piece was Lisa Ling's expression. She had this strange grin on her face like she was enjoying watching this horror. I usually like her reporting, but not so this time.

But beyond that maybe 3 minutes of gruesome, it was a very informative show. Oprah's staff went vegan for a week, and it was interesting to watch.

I read Kathy's first book and it was great. She now has a new book out called Veganist, if anyone on this board is interested.

Something else that did bother me was when Kathy started to go into the suffering of the animals, and Oprah cut her off and said, but they don't suffer. I was a bit disappointed in Oprah at that point. Come on Oprah, do you really think Cargill is going to show the animals that make it through the knockers/stunners alive, and are alive when slaughtered? For a smart woman, how gullible can you be? She REALLY needs to look a little further below the surface. But maybe she is seeing what she needs to see and hearing what she needs to hear, to continue to eat meat.

I hope some other non-meat eaters caught the show and can share what they thought of it. If you missed it, I think you can catch it tonight at 9pm on whatever channel Oprah is on in your area.

Would love to hear from some of the other vegans/vegetarians that caught the show.
