Media Bias

Many journalists have not researched the issues surrounding animal rights activism often whatever NETCU states is simply regurgitated after reporters have been spoon-fed the story.

We believe in a free press but are disgusted by media hysterics concerning ‘animal rights extremism’ which consistently omits violence and harassment from police and animal abusers.

The following are examples of the current state of media bias and our response to it.

  1. Yes, Noam Chomsky showed how the mainstream media is biased in Manufacturing Consent (book and film). The way the activists are labelled “extremists” already denotes a bias. The violence against the animals is not noted or downplayed or excuses. There is no unbiased reporting here; it is one-sided. Who speaks for the animals? They are in jail and silenced.
