in Terrorism Legislation

On The Media features Will Potter about undercover investigations of factory farms.NPR’s “On The Media” invited me to discuss the attempts by multiple states to outlaw undercover investigations of factory farms, animal experimentation labs, puppy mills and other industries.

My interview with Bob Garfield of NPR is online now. And the interview is even more timely because, as I reported yesterday, New York is now considering similar legislation.

If you’re not familiar with the program, On The Media is one of NPR’s most popular shows, airing on over 200 stations. It has won Edward R. Murrow Awards for feature reporting and investigative reporting, along with a National Press Club Award and a Peabody. (In short: I had to do my best not to totally geek out with joy about being on one of my favorite shows).
