      http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2008/11/29/us/20081129POULTRY_4.html

      I have several objections to the article & slideshow, such as:

      1) the article mentions 20-35 thousand birds cramped per house,
      without describing the horrific conditions.



      2) the slide show is misleading by
      showing teensy 2" chicks spread out vs grown birds with no room to move about.







      3) the article praises chicken as affordable, high quality, low fat
      protein. it mentions, yet ignores, the higher quality, zero-cholesterol corn & soy
      crop, which could feed so many more people than birds, or be used for
      bio-fuel.

      4) the article praises slaughterhouse
      job creation, without explaining why the industry needs irrradiation to
      address manure that cannot be purged in the fast assembly lines.

      5) the article
      praises manure pellets as great organic fertilizer, without mentioning
      the great amounts of steroids and antibiotics fed to the crowded birds.
