Food disparagement laws are a dangerous attack by agribusiness lobbyists against Americans' most valued and fundamental First Amendment free speech rights.

The non-profit Center for Media & Democracy is committed to investigating and exposing threats to free speech and public safety through reporting in its quarterly PR Watch, and its books Mad Cow U.S.A. and Toxic Sludge Is Good For You: Lies, Damn Lies and The Public Relations Industry.

The Center wholeheartedly endorses the FoodSpeak campaign and plans to work with the Coalition to repeal and challenge existing food disparagement laws and contest all proposed ones.
