McDonalds accused of bribing bloggers

(CNN) - Not everything you read online may be as it appears -- McDonald's is now being accused of bribing hundreds of bloggers to write positive things about the fast food chain.

Its not just some free burgers either. The company reportedly has thrown parties and given gifts to as many as 400 McDonald's friendly bloggers. And there's more -- McDonald's reportedly flew 15 bloggers to their Illinois headquarters last year, put them up at fancy hotels and gave them a tour of their facilities.

And last year, the company compensated so-called "mommy bloggers" for writing about its new "wholesome choices" program for its happy meals.
