Karen Dawn–media watchdog

by | May 7, 2008

Karen Dawn–a veteran Los Angeles-based and nationally-recognized media watchdog, specializing in animal coverage; her DawnWatch e-mail alerts call attention to radio, television and print pieces about animals or, sometimes, health, nutrition, the environment–discusses the history and impact of the DawnWatch alerts (which urge recipients to communicate support to the reporter, editor, producer–providing contact info to do so–in a bid to cultivate more such coverage), and various aspects of “Thanking The Monkey: Rethinking The Way We Treat Animals,” her beautifully-written her new book that examines a full spectrum of animal issues in a friendly, conversational manner and liberally sprinkled with “Bizarro” cartoons and other engaging visual elements, including photos of celebrity animal advocates.
