A mate of the Hound reckons the readers of the darling publication of left-wingers and liberals — The Guardian newspaper — should take its stories about farming and animal welfare with a large grain of salt.

According to reports, The Open Philanthropy Project has given $886,600 over two years… “to theguardian.org to support journalism on factory farming and farm animal cruelty”. In awarding the grant, these benefactors claim… it “will allow The Guardian to increase its reporting output on issues related to factory farming” …

The Guardian claims it will be … “an opportunity to increase the salience of farm animal welfare issues amongst influential journalists, policymakers, and business leaders”.

Yeah, right. And if you believe that then this old mutt has a bridge he can sell you.
