Spanish Broadcasters Reject Bullfighting

Written by PETA | December 6, 2007

This news pretty much made my day. According to Britain’s The Independent, Madrid’s state radio and television network has left bullfighting off of its “obligatory programming” list for the first time since it started showing the bloody spectacle back in the deezy. The pro-bullfighting lobby was quick to announce that this is no big deal and won’t affect the popularity of the blood sport. The following is a transcript of an imaginary conversation I just had with the pro-bullfighting lobby:

Pro-bullfighting lobby: “Whatever. This won’t affect the popularity of our event.”
Jack: “Yes, pro-bullfighting lobby, it will. When your country’s television station takes your event off the air, it actually is a big deal. Just look what happened to the XFL.”
Pro-bullfighting lobby: “What the hell is the XFL?”
Jack: “Exactly.”

    Michele Good luck with Specious Science. As you might know the Drs. Greek have a great website They also encourage you to freely use their materials in letters debates or forums. You can find a great interview by Bob Linden with Dr. Ray Greek here httpwww.goveganradio.comveg1003ListentoPastShows.htm It’s the Jan 16 2005 podcast2nd half of the show. You’ve got to check out an antivivisector in the UK. He states that no vivisector in the UK will engage him in debate because he always wins.
