Mainstream media call for mainstream ag education

An incredible editorial in the Modesto Bee makes me believe that some in the mainstream media actually do get it, and in more ways than one.

The Bee believes that a lawsuit filed against the California Milk Advisory Board and the California Department of Agriculture by the group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is indeed “silly” and “misdirected.”

I couldn’t agree more.

Good idea, but most media monkeys are city people who find agriculture to be mundane, and are bored by it. Only when catastrophe threatens, like the bee die-off, do they get a frisson of excitement about it.

If folks haven’t noticed..PETA does, and says, all kinds of whackadoodle stuff for free plubicity.. and from what I can tell it works!
However, like most lefty orgs they want you to live a certain way..however, it doesn’t necessarily apply to them.

Otherwise, I am still hoping for a conservative cable tv network..not just a channel but a network!
One channel could be simular to Discovery but would focus their entire show(s) on dairy farming one week and putting vetables on your table on next weeks show.
Show different people doing different jobs...capitalism good=make America, and Americans, strong.

It is encouraging to hear that some people ‘get it’.
