Fat Police

Here’s the “food police” ad that the Daily News wrote about today. Although it’s a direct response to the city’s efforts to ban unhealthy fats from restaurants, the piece doesn’t actually mention the offending “trans-fat” term.

It’s from the Consumer Freedom Group, which is funded by a select portion of the food industry.

“Many of the companies and individuals who support the Center financially have indicated that they want anonymity as contributors. They are reasonably apprehensive about privacy and safety in light of the violence some activist groups have adopted as a “game plan” to impose their views.”

The ad above is going to air on CNN and Fox News this week. Notice the guy who gets the beer knocked out of his hand. Exaggeration?
