That's interesting, and good so far as it went. The lady didn't mention the fact that some of those videos seem to be done by new employees who have taken the job for the very purpose of manufacturing incidencts to use, whether by themselves, or by urging other employees to act improperly toward animals, and are NOT condonedby the owner who usually is not present. Until there are laws used to punish people who withhold evidence of animal abuse for political or fundraising purposes, how are we to counteract such acts. Not all farmers can be with their employees 24/7. So long as HSUS and other even more terroristic animal RIGHTS groups are able to gain access to farms, and IF caught, suffer few consequences, farmers are between that proverbial 'rock and a hard place', with a lose/lose situation. There HAS to be consequences for the supporting organization, usually HSUS in these situations. Doesn't it seem reasonable that when they use such films for advertising to solicit funds they have complicity as an organization, especially when law enforcement is not called immediately?
