Super Sized Spin

In today’s Chicago Sun-Times, the Center for Consumer Freedom exposes a documentary that is “not a documentary at all.” Morgan Spurlock’s much-talked-about “Super Size Me,” which will soon be released in theatres, represents an extreme departure from reality. This “video diary” aims to solve the baffling mystery: What happens if you eat 90 fast-food meals in a row? Of course, we already know the answer, and that’s why, back in reality, no one gorges at any single restaurant for every meal. Nevertheless, Spurlock tries to pass off this glorified voyeur flick as an “honest film” depicting the results of a “fast-food diet.” But as our op-ed demonstrates, it’s just an exercise in stupidity caught on tape.
