His work to champion farm animal protection has garnered the support of celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Alec Baldwin, Martha Stewart, and Chevy Chase, and made headlines around the world, including numerous stories in The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Washington Post, and USA Today. He has appeared on countless television and radio programs, including NBC, CBS, ABC, “The Larry King Show,” “The Martha Stewart Show,” and various programs on CNN and the Fox News Channel. or
