CNN Shows Downer Pig Video

Major network airs factory-farming footage, reporters call industry practices “barbaric.”

This week, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) released undercover video footage of downer pigs filmed at an Iowa factory farm. The video aired during the Wednesday night edition of Issues, and host Jane Velez-Mitchell criticized factory farming, saying it promotes "dangerous and barbaric practices." Both Velez-Mitchell and CNN correspondent Nicole Lapin expressed anger and disgust over the footage, and reminded viewers that while such practices are unethical and disturbing, they are still currently legal. Lapin said she has appealed to the US Department of Agriculture to institute a downer pig law, similar to the one recently passed for downer cows.
