ABC knows Photoshop.
There’s a big new story leading the Health section at ABC News. It seems reporter Jonathan Fenaroli is feeling bad about being vegetarian but is too weak to go vegan, so he set out to find some quotes to support his insecurities. Only, all the vegans he quotes, including SuperVegan’s own Jason Atkins, are totally not condescending or high-horsey. Fenaroli does quote a few vegetarians with apocryphal stories of being preached at, but basically the whole thing reads like fishing for quotes in support of a fishy thesis (no offense to the fish).
As Jason says, “naming is counterproductive because it causes division. I would like it personally if everyone were vegans, but that’s not very realistic. Some people consider veganism giving something up. I don’t see it that way; I just don’t want to purchase or contribute to anything that hurts animals.” Right on.
