:when is the obligatory book and "Oprah" interview coming out?

I don't know about the interview, but the book is already here (read all about it on McSpotlight). And if there is one person who needs to read it is you to inform yourself about the backgroun to the case before jumping to conclusions.

:I beleive their is nothing wrong with their food.

And of course you are entitle to your views. But you are confusing two issues. On is whether should eat junk food like McD's (and during the case McD agreed that its food is junk) and the other is whether we, the general public have the right to correct information about the product we are consuming before we make up our minds. The 2nd issue is what the case was all about; that whether McD and other multi billion corporations should mobilise their massive power and the full force of the law to silence their critics.

So don't worry, go ahead, eat McD burgers f you wish. No one is trying to deprive you of your little Big Mac!

:My motto is "everything in moderation"

That's funny, isn't that McD's motto too? Oh well, thet's the power of suggestion!

:Mcdonalds won at the end of day. Good on them for sticking up for themselves. They obviously take slanderous allegations very seriously to spend the amount of money on their legal representation.

Now that's interesting, I thought you said, in your previous messge that the money would have been better spent on the hungry people around the world. You have a very shot memory. Perhaps you have eaten too much beef!
