NPR Interviews Will Potter on “Ag Gag” Bills, and Labeling Whistleblowers as “Terrorists” [GreenIsTheNewRed.com]
I’m a huge fan of NPR’s “On the Media.” It’s hands-down some of the sharpest, most comprehensive coverage of free speech, privacy, and media issues. So I was thrilled to be back on the program recently talking about “ag gag” bills that threaten undercover investigators, whistleblowers, and even journalists.
As NPR’s Brooke Gladstone notes, undercover investigations are often used today by animal protection groups, but the tactic has roots in investigative journalism like Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle. “Since then,” Gladstone says, “many journalists have used the same tactic to expose the hidden corners of our food supply.”
