UPDATE: After I posted this video, I emailed Sally Fallon Morell and David Wetzel to ask them for commentary. I offered them the opportunity to be interviewed and/or issue a statement. Obviously they will need some time to watch the video, and they may want to watch all the videos in this series before they are ready to comment. So I’d like to give them ample time to respond. I will update my blog and Cheeseslave Facebook page when I hear back from them.
This is the ninth video in the Fermented Cod Liver Oil Scandal interview series.
In this video, #9 in the Fermented Cod Liver Oil Scandal series, I talk to Annie Dru, Ancestral Cuisine Educator, of Lardmouth.
We talked about:
* Holding people accountable for bad behavior and mistakes (humanness), while at the same time, expressing forgiveness and love for them
* Public shaming and how much it hurts every one of us
* How a healthy community can support each other through tough times
* How we can transform a shame-based organization into one that lets people share their voices, ask questions, and engage in conflict and disagreement, and one that allows everyone to participate and shine their light and share their talents
WARNING: I know many of you are watching these videos with your kids. This video contains sensitive content that is not appropriate for children. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

Reactions from Others in the WAPF Community
Do we need more accountability and transparency from David Wetzel of Green Pasture Products and Sally Fallon Morell of the Weston A. Price Foundation?
I think so. And many others agree with me.
A couple days ago on David Gumpert’s Complete Patient Facebook page, someone brought up in this thread the notion that this whole thing has been blown out of proportion. (You can read the whole thread and comment on the thread here.)
This longtime WAPF member (Hi, Bryan!) posted the comment:
My response to Bryan yesterday was this:
Cathy Raymond, who worked for almost a decade for the Weston A. Price Foundation and the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund
Liz Reitzig, winner of the WAPF Activist Award, raw milk activist, and the owner of a large buying club in her community
Randy Hartnell, owner of Vital Choice Seafood and longtime WAPF member and sponsor
Blaine McAfee, farmer and co-owner of the world’s largest raw milk dairy, Organic Pastures in California
Here is what how they responded:
