I attended the "Right to Harm" viewing in town last week. The movie sheds plenty of heat but little light. The panel discussion too was one-sided. No doubt all of the featured horror stories from seven other states are easy to find online. Nobody defends bad actors. Rather than indiscriminately condemning all CAFOs, doesn't it make sense to check facts first? Had organizers taken a more balanced approach instead of perpetuating fear, the event could have been genuinely informative.
