H/T Rose for this report on upcoming ‘corrective statements’ by Big Tobacco:
Under the agreement with the Justice Department, each of the companies must publish full-page ads in the Sunday editions of 35 newspapers and on the newspapers’ websites, as well as air prime-time TV spots on CBS, ABC or NBC five times per week for a year. The companies also must publish the statements on their websites and affix them to a certain number of cigarette packs three times per year for two years.
Each corrective ad is to be prefaced by a statement that a federal court has concluded that the defendant tobacco companies “deliberately deceived the American public.” Among the required statements are that smoking kills more people than murder, AIDS, suicide, drugs, car crashes and alcohol combined, and that “secondhand smoke kills over 38,000 Americans a year.”
Rose states the obvious:
“Thank goodness anti-tobacco warned us never to believe a word that those wicked tobacco companies say.”
I used to half-believe everything that was said against tobacco. But over the last seven years, I’ve gradually ceased to believe any of it at all.
That’s a consequence of seeing just how vile Tobacco Control really is. And just how bad their ‘research’ is too.
Tobacco Control has done me far more harm than tobacco ever did.
