Portland, Oregon –-(AmmoLand.com)- CNN is set to air a full hour special tonight called Jane's Fight for Animal Rights.

It features representatives from the hardcore animal rights fundraising groups, PETA, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), Sea Shepherd, In Defense of Animals, Farm Sanctuary, and Mercy for Animals — not one of which represents mainstream values.

It also includes cameo appearances from celebrity spokespeople for animal rights, Bob Barker, Pierce Brosnan, and others used to legitimize extremist views.

Media depends on ratings to stay on the air, so it's understandable that TV networks sometimes select groups whose media-grabbing antics and out-of-the-mainstream views makes them newsworthy, at least as representing a minority point of view. What makes CNN's show so reprehensible is their lack of balance, their lack of providing people representing the majority view the opportunity to refute extremist claims with fact-based evidence.

The result is that CNN's show is providing radicals a platform to be seen as America's go-to resource when it comes to animal issues. Thus, PETA, a group that has refused to condemn violence committed in the names of animals, HSUS, a group with a spokesperson who said his goal is the abolition of agriculture, and Sea Shepherd whose leader, Paul Watson was recently placed on Interpol's International Wanted List all get free publicity and the CNN bully pulpit.

It's vitally important that you tell CNN how you feel about their program and about the groups they've selected to represent animal issues. CNN needs to understand that pandering to sensationalism not only hurts the people who actually care for animals, it hurts the animals themselves. Let's use this opportunity to educate CNN about the animal rights agenda and how it differs from true animal welfare.

    RE: Jane's Fight for Animal Rights

    This is a disgusting display of media-grabbing antics and out-of-the-mainstream views by radical animal rights groups that represent a twisted point of view. What makes this show so reprehensible is the complete lack of balance and failure to provide people representing the majority view the opportunity to refute extremist claims with fact-based evidence.

    This show is providing radicals a platform to be seen as America's go-to resource when it comes to animal issues. Thus, PETA, a group that has refused to condemn violence committed in the names of animals, HSUS, a group with a spokesperson who said his goal is the abolition of agriculture, and Sea Shepherd whose leader, Paul Watson was recently placed on Interpol's International Wanted List all get free publicity and the CNN bully pulpit.

    Once again you fail at real journalism and your in ability to present real facts.

    1. the sad thing about this CNN episode is that they're deliberately spreading misinformation, as espoused by a number of supporters in these comments. The japanese are NOT hunting endangered animals. No country recognizes australia's ludicrous claims of an antarctic EEZ. They are conducting viable and authentic research.

      It always gets me how such people protest the death of a few thousand whales versus the billions of animals slaughtered in the US for food. Its pure cultural biases.

    2. Thomas you idiot the article has nothing to do with killing animals.

      It is about the difference between science based conservation groups and radical animal rights groups that could careless about animals and more about controlling people or promoting veganism.

    3. I wrote to CNN to keep it up. I like it to see that Animal Right and Enviromental groups get a platform on CNN. Just because you love to kill animals it does not justify your article.

    4. Nice thoughts Jesse, but the problem is even if I had the time or the skill set to make such a video, organizations like CNN will never give someone with my vision, (to conservative, to pro gun, to pro hunting), air time.

      That is why you need to "sabotage", your words, any media company that would allow such a one sided documentary that is so far removed from reality.

    5. Should news only report views that are the most mainstream? It would seem if they only do that it will be hard to have a real democracy, as well as to introduce new ideas to our society that will keep us evolving. Lets hear all of the perspectives and let everyone with something to say make their show and we as a people can say what's good and whats not – but people trying to sabotage a media company that produced a show that contains information they dont agree with seems pretty talibanish. Make your own special, and let the people choose their truths.

    6. I am with Ammoland on this, these are the most radical of animal rights groups and do nothing but hurt us volunteers who are on the ground making a difference. They do nothing to give back to us.

      I have sent them my email of disgust to CNN and I have forwarded this page to my entire volunteer shelter organization.

    7. No one heard that 17 nations and 32,000 shelters are colluding in burying US and Canadian shelters under foreign dogs. Nor was a word mentioned about US shelters having been turned into the largest of "puppy mill end sales outlets" for the foreign dogs by the animal radical groups.

    8. Here we go again… Look who is leaving the angry threatening comments..hmm its the people who love animals!!

      It is always those who claim to be so caring and loving of all gods creatures that leave the meanest, name calling insulting comments.

      At least hunters are honest about where their meat comes from while the rest of you just pay someone else to do your killing for you.

      The Sample letter is correct Paul Watson is on Interpol’s International Wanted List, just because your "hero" is on this list with terrorist, humane traffickers and mass murderers does not make this article any less correct.

      Maybe you should choose better role models?

    9. What sort of ignorant sample letter is this? Paul Watson was placed on the Interpol list by a government which gos into the territory of another country, and kills protected, endangered mammals. The Japanese government will be taken to court for illegal trespass and Japanese whaler ships are banned from Australian ports. Sea Shepherd is a registered charity and their ships are fully registered with Holland. Their ships and captains can go where they please.

      The 'Interpol List' is a bogus charge and attempt by a corrupt government to hide illegal poaching and criminal trespass.

    10. Anyone who belongs to this site is a low life, ignorant slime bag redneck.

      Anyone who gets 'off'' on the moment of death of another being is insane and just taking up space that is needed for the compassionate people.

    11. WTF is that stupid sample letter on this web site for? It's disgusting and erroneous to the nth degree. I don't like HSUS since the director is a crook, but don't you dare say anything bad about Sea Shepherd. He is one of the few heros on this planet.

      What have you done to save a whale?
