McSpotlight DOES cover both Tobacco and Pharmaceutical industries. Fast food is the 'central' issue here only in that the site was put together to provide people with access to information about the libel trial that the mainstream media was failing to make available.

I am sure that is not true. Okay, so they haven't sued anyone that I am aware of for handing out leaflets produced by London Greenpeace but they have repeatedly used their power and money to silence critics, used tame scientists to create favourable studies, and the pharmaceutical industry has even managed to get competing natural products removed from the market.

As I look back over the years that I have been visiting McSpotlight I notice that the same questions (like the orginal question in this thread) have been asked and aswered over and over again. Doesn't anyone bother reading FAQs any more? There is one you know.
