As California's foie gras ban rapidly approaches, more and more media outlets are starting to pay attention. This morning, CBS ran a story about diners, protesters and the chefs in L.A. They interviewed chefs Michael Voltaggio (ink.) and Josiah Citrin (Melisse), and captured the tensions between diners and protesters outside Citrin's restaurant, where, the story claims, Citrin is struggling to keep up with demand for foie gras even as demonstrators outside harangue customers as they enter.

Reporter Ben Tracy also visits Guillermo Gonzalez, the only California foie gras farmer, as he shuts down his farm.

CBS followed up Tracy's story with an interview with José Andrés (The Bazaar), who claims this is the beginning of a government attempt to stop us from eating meat altogether.
