Junk Food News
NewsWatch Canada is compiling a list of over-reported junk food news stories. Please consider nominating any junk food news stories that you believe are the most over-reported, yet least deserving, news stories of this year (1997).
The label "junk food" refers specifically to over-reported news stories whose abundant coverage is of little or no significance to the general public. This is not to say that the stories themselves lack significance, but that certain, over-reported aspects of these stories are sensationalized, peronalized and homogenized to the extent that the story itself becomes inconsequential trivia.
If you know of a story that has been over-reported please write to:
