Guardian letter 6 (March 2015)
A much trumpeted exclusive interview with George Clooney in The Guardian (UK national left-liberal newspaper) gave us Clooney’s views on Donald Trump (he’s a fascist), but didn’t mention Clooney’s ongoing promotion of Nestlé’s Nespresso products.
According to IBFAN (the International Baby Food Action Network), Nestlé continues to aggressively market baby foods around the world in breach of international marketing standards, contributing to the unnecessary death and suffering of infants.
When Clooney is asked about this he gets angry and defensive. Perhaps the interviewer didn’t want to upset the great philanthropist and political philosopher.
Postscript: Amazingly, I’ve had a viewer. Disturbingly, WordPress says they’re from the USA. I know the Cloonies have a house in Italy, but his people will be in the USA. In case Mrs C is about to sue me, let me make it clear: I don’t think Mr Clooney has personally killed any babies.
Please feel free to comment.
