  • The Paradox of Expertise
    Noah Berlatsky writes in the Los Angeles Review of Books: RECENTLY I WROTE a story about Star Wars and science fiction for The Atlantic. The comments section, as these things will, featured a large number of people telling me that I was unqualified to write about the topic because I hadn't read enough sci-fi books, or hadn't read [...] (...more)

  • The Chicago Tribune On Eating Meat
      As promised, I will spend more time this year dedicating space to viewpoints that I deeply oppose. This is especially the case for the following excerpt, which comes from a review of my book,  The Modern Savage. As will be evident to anyone familiar with basic animal ethics, the author’s reasoning would fail an [...] (...more)

  • Is Foie Gras Unimportant?
    Mark Bittman's recent column on California's overturn of the state's foie gras ban is—for lack of a better term—weird. Really weird. The gist is that Bittman thinks we're paying too much attention to the cruelty of foie gras—“the most overrated of luxury ingredients”—while ignoring the reality that the vast majority of animal agriculture (...more)

  • The Times Scrambles Story On Eggs
    Early last week the animal activist group Direct Action Everywhere released a harrowing video based on an undercover investigation of Petaluma Farms, a Northern California operation that supplies eggs to Whole Foods and Organic Valley. In it, hundreds of chickens are shown crammed into sheds and suffering several obvious ailments, including respiratory (...more)

  • Whole Foods Cracked Open
    If you haven’t headed over to The Daily Pitchfork (dailypitchfork.org) here’s what you’re missing out on: This new Whole Foods ad appeals to the increasingly popular dictum to know where your food comes from. It reads: “Know What Kind Of Life Your Dinner Lived.” On the face of it, the movement to better understand the [...] (...more)

    Happy New Year friends. The upcoming year will see some changes here at The Pitchfork. Much of the critical commentary on eating animals and animal rights will take place on a new site, which will be launched in the next few days, called The Daily Pitchfork.

  • “Sheepwrecked”
    The following quote is from George Monbiot’s most recent Guardian column. It’s worth reading in full, but for now: “[W]hile researching my book Feral, I came to see that our perception of free-range meat has also been sanitised. The hills of Britain have been sheepwrecked – stripped of their vegetation, emptied of wildlife, shorn of (...more)

  • Beef and Global Warming Denial
    In her recent op-ed salvo, this one in the Wall Street Journal, Nicolette Hahn Niman, a vegetarian rancher (which, really, strikes me as kind of like an “Amish carpet bomber”) tells us that, in fact, a global consensus of environmental science has it all backwards and that she, again, a rancher, wants us to know [...] (...more)
