Carla Hall and Pacelle vs. Winograd

Carla Hall, who writes animal brown-nose fluff pieces for the LA Times wrote a suck-up of Wayne Pacelle today. In it he is quoted as saying animal shelter managers should not be attacked because they have high kill rates, that it is a community problem.,0,4840426.story

Nathan Winograd responded hours later on his blog:

I thought it was a wonderful article and presented a truthful view of HSUS. I wrote her and thanked her for it. Pacelle sure has Winograd's number, enjoyed that part for sure. At least Pacelle doesn't suffer the short man syndrome like Nathan does. And he is a lot easier to look at.

Seemed like a fluff piece on HSUS to me. I've wondered a long time why the press is so easy on HSUS, the ASPCA, and PETA. It seems to me that the American press (here, the NY Times) has largely abandoned the nation's sheltered animals by failing to critically evaluate shelter assumptions, excuses, and policies. As long as high-kill shelter directors are supported by the traditional animal-welfare establishment, the press seems willing to go along and look the other way.
