Little girl challenges CEO
Don Thompson, CEO of McDonald's Corp., found himself on the grill after a 9-year-old girl accused the fast food giant of trying to "trick kids into eating food that isn't good for them."
Hannah Robertson, the 9-year-old girl who grilled Don Thompson, the CEO of McDonald's Corp., at a shareholder meeting for marketing fast food to children said she wasn't impressed with his response.

"I don't think he answered it very well, because he just kept saying the same things over and over again like, 'We don't market to kids and we don't sell junk food,'" Robertson said.

Thompson found himself in the hotseat at the annual shareholder meeting Thursday in Oak Brook, Ill., the company's headquarters, when he was confronted by the 9-year-old, who had flown in from Kelowna, British Columbia with her mother for the meeting.

"Something that I don't think is fair is when big companies try to trick kids into eating food that isn't good for them by using toys and cartoon characters," Hannah said during the question and answer part of the meeting. "If parents haven't taught their kids about healthy eating then the kids probably believe that junk food is good for them because it might taste good."
Wow, could this girl be more bratty and precocious?  It sounds like she just wanted a confrontation to feel Oprah-empowered.  They went all that way just to bother a guy about something his company doesn't even do.

All I gotta say is this:
