The Center for Consumer Freedom is pleased to announce our 5th Annual Tarnished Halo Awards. Each year we shine the spotlight on America's most notorious animal-rights zealots, environmental scaremongers, celebrity busybodies, self-anointed "public interest" advocates, trial lawyers, and other food and beverage activists who claim to "know what's best for you." This year's winners:
