Is fat headedness at cable networks going too far?

KFC Double Down Sandwich

From the CNN article entitled “Is fat fare at fast foods going too far?

“The bun-free (“so meaty, there’s no room”) sandwich features two pieces of bacon, two slices of melted cheese and “Colonel’s Sauce” – which KFC officials said is a “zesty mayonnaise” — slathered between two chicken filets, either original recipe (540 calories and 32 fat grams per or the slightly slimmer grilled version (460 calories and 23 fat grams).”

Oh, how absolutely ghastly! Large numbers imply horrible results for our waistlines!

Er, wait a minute – here’s a screenshot (with MS paint emphasis) from the McDonald’s nutrition calculator:

McDonald's Comparison Boigahs

I’m not saying a Big Mac is good for you, but the media should keep their cases of the vapours to appropriate situations.

Either that or be honest about ALL fast food.
