Courtesy of Cato Institute policy analyst Will Wilkinson, I’d like to direct your attention to Morgan Spurlock Watch. Morgan Spurlock is the guy who’s 15 minutes of fame can be attributed to a movie called Super Size Me, in which he ate nothing but McDonald’s ‘cuisine’ (exclusively, no less) for 30 days straight. Spurlock has since become published and his 'tome' is entitled: ”Don’t Eat This Book.

The blog’s tag line is: "The only cure for contempt is counter-contempt."
--H.L. Mencken

The proprietor of the blog self-describes as follows:
The general purpose of this site is to counter the silly hysteria perpetuated by Morgan Spurlock.

Join us as we deconstruct Spurlock's book (called Don't Eat This Book), line by factually-challenged line.

The site is maintained by me, Radley Balko, a writer, editor, and policy wonk living in the Washington, D.C. area. I study obesity, vice, and Nanny State issues for a living.
