Lieberman Tells Fast Food Marketers to Stop Making Kids Fat
Senator Joe Leiberman, crusader against all things fun (OK, bad), is taking on the fast food companies now and telling them to stop making kids fat by marketing junk food to them. Spouting platitudes from the pulpit, Liberman said, "Parents today are being forced to contend with a new threat; big food companies targeting junk food at children. And that's literally feeding an epidemic of obesity that our top public health experts contend is the biggest health threat out there today. It's time to stand up to the companies marketing to children products that can be harmful to their health."
No mention was made by Lieberman about parents actually taking responsibility for their children's eating habits or moderating the time they sit on their fat assess playing video games, IMing friends and watching TV.
