Tobacco Companies Ordered to Make Anti-Smoking Ads
After fighting to have graphic anti-smoking ads taken down, a judge has ordered big tobacco companies to use ads to publicly admit that they deceived Americans about the dangers of smoking.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Foster has details:
A Federal judge in Washington orders the tobacco companies to take out ads with five different statements: One, that they “deliberately deceived the American public about the health effects of smoking.” Another, that secondhand smoke kills more than 3,000 Americans a year.
In 1996, U.S. District Judge Gladys Keller found the companies violated Federal racketeering law. This is the first time the language in those mandated ads has been spelled out.
The tobacco companies could appeal it.
