McDonald's scuppers German TV items on McLibel Trial

  • The McLibel Support Campaign received reliable information this week that McDonald's has used its corporate might and 'good business connections' to prevent coverage of the case.

    "It is our understanding that McDonald's has used its influence and power to ensure that two different television pieces on the trial which were due to be broadcast on German TV will not be shown. The items were going to be shown on Spiegel TV (RTL Channel) and Pro7," said an MSC statement.
