As usual, you have taken my words way out of context. I value freedom of speech just as much as anyone, but McDonald's is hardly threatening this liberty. Hitler threatened freedom of speech. So did Pol Pot. McDonald's is just another corporation trying to sell a product.
McSpotlight: And a company that issued over 30 libel suits against companies and individuals who criticised their business practices. That's why the McLibel trial happened; and that's why McSpotlight is here; McDonald's tried to silence fair comment with arbitrary lawsuits; they threw $16 million into the McLibel suit; and the judge ruled that McDonald's was guilty of culpable cruelty to animals, exploiting children and paying their workers low wages. He also ruled that McDonald's advertising pretended their food to have a nutritional content it didn't actually have.
