How light was the news this Monday? So light that each network filed a feature on food. NBC's Anne Thompson publicized the yoghurt at Stonyfield Farm in her piece on the decelerating uptick in sales in the pricey organics aisle. CBS' Mark Strassmann offered a plug for Chick-Fil-A, the fast food chain, in his report on kids' meals. The Center for Science in the Public Interest found that the calorie count of the specialty children's menus at most chains far exceeds recommended nutritional guidelines. Chick-Fil-A is an honorable exception. And on ABC, Chris Bury took a trip to McDonald's where the Dollar Menu is feeling the squeeze. "Consider a double cheeseburger," Bury invited us. The bun costs more, the beef costs more, the cheese costs more, even the condiments. "Some franchises are selling it with a single slice of cheese."
