If you put in your vote for the turkeys last weekend (or you tried) this, from the CBS website, will make you feel good about your efforts:


(CBS) CBS Evening News with Katie Couric is giving you a direct say in what makes the broadcast.

You, the viewer, are officially in charge of all the assignments of CBS News correspondent Steve Hartman. You get to tell him where to go and what to do — within reason, of course.

Every Friday we present three story pitches and you get to vote for the story you think sounds most interesting. Whichever story gets the most votes by 12 a.m. ET on Sunday is the winner.

Thanksgiving is almost here, and it’s never been a better time to be a turkey — at least a wild one. Viewers are sending Steve to report on the latest efforts to save them … from your dinner plate.

Watch Friday’s CBS Evening News with Katie Couric to see Steve’s report.


Check out the story on Friday, and if you like what you see, please thank CBS Evening News for the coverage. Positive feedback for animal friendly coverage will encourage more of it. The show takes comments at evening [at] cbsnews.com

Yours and the animals’,
Karen Dawn
