Kellogg’s mixes left lurching politics with peddling its sugary products
At first glance it appears odd that a well-respected, conservative media outlet such as Breitbart News would engage in any type of bout with Kellogg’s.
But it was the sugar-drenched cereal manufacturer recently exposed for using deceptive practices citing a company paid “Breakfast Council” of “independent experts” to tout its nutritional benefits, that landed the first blow as it announced its decision to pull ads from Breitbart.com. Breitbart is not “aligned with our values as a company,” Kellogg said in a statement. The company’s values obviously don’t include President-elect Donald Trump’s top strategist Steve Bannon, who formerly ran the popular news site.
This is the shocking back story to what you may have regarded as an unhealthy but politically benign cereal manufacturer.

Why would any parent want to serve their kids a bowl of Frosted Flakes that is loaded with sugar, salt and BHT preservatives? Tony the Tiger and Kellogg’s fake “experts” might think this is “GR-R-REAT!” but you know it and the other products Kellogg’s sells are as loaded with as much trickery as the company’s left-wing politics. Join the nearly 400,000 people — as of this morning –who are boycotting the morning sugar rush products bearing the Kellogg’s brand.
