McDonald's churns out an incredible volume and range of sophisticated propaganda. It often masquerades as factual information, or as merely informing the public of 'the McDonald's experience'. The company carefully targets sections of the population (customers, the media, health professionals etc).

Every item is very carefully written, often in order to give false impressions, often omitting crucial facts, and often in an extremely ambiguous way. However, it is possible to read between the lines or to just marvel at the idiocy of what is being said, and at the dependance of the company on its carefully manufactured image.

Internet Presence





    "They hope to justify their existence, to counter criticism, to ingratiate themselves with local communities and to target sections of the population who they want to buy their products. And what better way to do this than to be seen to be 'helping' the community, doing 'charitable' good works... "
