Eat This Foot


Radley "The Agitator" Balko has a new blog up devoted to debunking Super-Size Me auteur Morgan Spurlock—and in particular Spurlock's junkalicious new Don't Eat This Book. It's pretty jaw-dropping so far: From the looks of it, Spurlock has (literally) just recycled a bunch of hysterical claims from Internet chain letters—indeed, in one case, he cites an FDA newsletter article debunking anti-aspartame quack sites as endorsing the very claims it attributes to those quack sites (and then refutes). I don't expect much of Spurlock, but even I was taken aback; check it out.
