It is inexcusable for your reporter to refer to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine as "a physicians group" ("Doctors group says no junk food for the Obamas," May 7). The article not only fails to identify PCRM for what it is — an activist group devoted to promoting a vegan lifestyle — but goes on to parrot their agenda by suggesting thatMrs. Obama's choice to eat a cheeseburger is unhealthy.
Worse, it repeats PCRM's crude analogy of eating a slice of pizza to smoking a cigarette. This only trivializes the lethal risks of smoking. And you pile on by noting a long-ago "lunch run" to a hamburger restaurant — as though in doing so the First Lady had something to be ashamed of.
