A foodie's reaction to last week's Supreme Court decision (campaign funding)
UC undergraduate foodie/writer/blogger/journalism major Emily Lang (left) published a superb piece of reporting in her column in the school's award-winning newspaper this week about how the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to lift restrictions on corporate funding of campaign advertising is likely to affect what Americans eat.
Lang quotes food policy expert Marion Nestle, who thinks that the decision will hinder the work of those who "care about creating a good, clean, fair and sustainable food system."
I hadn't thought about the ramifications of the ruling on this important cause in my own life. Thanks to Ms. Lang for the column. Rather than paraphrase, I'll direct you to this link so you can read what she wrote.
