30-plus comments now on CBC page about last night’s raw milk movie broadcast

Here was my latest comment on that forum:

The use of governments as a tool by corporate interests to further their private advantage undermines what’s left of citizen respect for the moral stature of government.

In a comment on a recent CBC forum, a commenter who Michael Schmidt recognized as spouting the standard DFO (Dairy Farmers of Ontario) line about the dangers of raw milk made the fascinating statement that it was the DFO who was “prosecuting” Schmidt “and the other raw milk nuts”.

Clearly, the role of government in a civilized world is to stand up for the public interest in the face of corporate bullying.

As others have pointed out, there is no end of other products that are worse for your health than raw milk. And as long as the standards of production are equivalent to what Schmidt is doing, any short term health hazards are pretty minimal. And the long term health benefits are very significant.

P.S. Seems like the moderators are taking really long breaks between moderations — not very “moderate” if you ask me. It’s now 2:30 pm and the last posted comment is from 9 am. I made mine about 10:30 am. Maybe they want to discourage excessive commenting. I notice they also don’t have a count of the number of comments like they did a couple days ago, when the count got up to 365. Would want that happening again now, would we?

    Well, now it’s 3:35 and the CBC censor must have stopped by to review the comments because there are a few more posted. I note that mine, however (see text in post above) did not make the cut.

    What’s the matter? Too political? Makes you wonder how many other people’s comments did not make it through the CBC filters.

    Comments are always welcome here on the bovine, so if the CBC didn’t like what you had to say, bring it on over here!

    CBC finally did post my comment — a day later. I wonder what that signifies.
