Glossing Over Schlosser

Copley News Service ran a puff piece on Fast Food Nation author Eric Schlosser this week, letting the muckraking meat-basher rant about everything from meatpacking to immigration policy. Schlosser sounds more like a B-grade horror flick actor than a journalist when he exclaims: “There is this instinct that I encounter, which is, ‘What about me? What am I eating when I eat a burger? What’s in the French fries? What’s going to happen to me?” (That’s not too surprising: “Schlosser does not have a long history as an independent… investigative journalist. Until eight years ago, he worked in the film industry,” Copley reports.)
