Government Vs. Big Tobacco Companies

The government and big tobacco companies are in dispute over proposed advertisements.

Lawyers from both sides will meet with a federal judge Thursday concerning corrective statements. A judge ruled in 2006 that the industry concealed the dangers of smoking for decades.

To remedy that, the Justice Department wants the largest cigarette manufacturers to set up and pay for an advertising campaign of self criticism.

Those statements would have to admit deceit about the benefits of low-tar cigarettes and acknowledge that nicotine was used to keep customers coming back for more.

Marlboro says they are prepared to fight back.
