ABC getting in trouble today for its reporting on massively mechanized meat manufacture. Good for them for exposing it.
I remember--and this was one of the worst moments for me at food-biz UC Davis--how my suggestion that we invite Marion Nestle, author of Food Politics, to speak, was nixed by the now director of the Humanities Institute: "We don't want any muckrakers here."
Threw me into depression for weeks...But that was 2003. And now ABC is on it. Good.
