The media conspired to brainwash Americans with lies about secondhand smoke, in such a crude and heavy-handed manner, reminiscent of a Nazi dictatorship, that no intelligent person should have failed to be outraged.
DAVID BRINKLEY: In the meantime, George, you were exercised,
believe, about a discovery by the U.S. government. An announcement this
week or last that secondhand smoke, smoke as other people, smoke and
blow it out and you breathe it in, it causes cancer and it's dangerous
and it kills you.
GEORGE WILL: What they did is they upgraded it. You say I'm
exercised. I'm exercised with enthusiasm for the findings. What it
means is by upgrading the status of this to what I think the term is a
Class A carcinogen, secondhand smoke, they really put an enormous
litigation danger before, say, employers who allow smoking in the
workplace because then someone who.comes up with lung cancer can claim
that adequate precautions were not taken.
David, I can't think of any -- maybe you all can -- change in
everyday etiquette in American life comparable to the change in the
last 9.5 years in the status of smoking. This week, the Baltimore
Orioles became the fifth major league baseball team to say in an open
air stadium you cannot smoke in your seat.
SAM DONALDSON: But George, there's more work to be done in
church. Smokers must be driven to a cave someplace 6000 -- Carlsbad
Caverns. That's the only place we should allow them to smoke.
COKIE ROBERTS : Then the bats will become endangered. Are you
DONALDSON: The old line was if smokers wanted to kill
let them kill themselves, but they're killing everyone around them.
They're killing their children. If you're smoking, folks out there, and
you've got young children, why are you doing this to them? Why don't
you like them? Smokers must be driven out because they simply are
killing themselves and everybody else and they're adding to
costs of this government. Talk about the deficit. The single thing that
would reduce health care costs the most would be to ban people who
fact, their vaunted "EPA" ETS report
even written by EPA
scientists. It was written by handpicked anti-smoking activists (one of
whom publicly confessed), using illegal pass-through contracts to
conceal their roles. The actual EPA scientists were opposed to calling
secondhand smoke a human carcinogen. And, on the board of directors of
the contracting firm that handled the corrupt pass-throughs sat a crony
of President George H.W. Bush, who released the report during the final
days of his administration, along with a big-shot representative of the
Democratic Party, to ensure a bipartisan coverup of the corruption.
Furthermore, the author of the chapters on children's respiratory
doesn't even believe the rubbish that he wrote any more.
more importantly, the anti-smokers are automatically guilty of
scientific fraud because they ignore the role of carcinogenic viruses
in lung cancer, in the "EPA" report and in every subsequent study as
well. Human papillomaviruses
- which cause
99.7% of all cervical cancer - are now known to be involved in ten
times more lung cancers than the anti-smoking charlatans pretend are
caused by secondhand smoke. And smokers and passive smokers are more
likely to have been exposed to this virus. Because all of their vaunted
studies are nothing but lifestyle questionnaires, the anti-smokers are
falsely blaming lung cancers that are caused by HPV on smoking and
the media are deliberately concealing this fraud and corruption to
force their agenda on the world!]
WILL: Do you know what would happen if everybody quit smoking
by the way?
DONALDSON: They'd start drinking? Is that your view?
WILL: The Social Security system would be in dire shape
because the actuarial tables of the Social Security system count on a
certain large number of Americans dying prematurely from lung cancer
and not collecting their benefits.
DONALDSON: Well, we'll figure out some other way to save the
[Their beloved George W.
Bush saved the day by opening the floodgates to a massive invasion
of illegal aliens! And their filthy allies, the "Progressives,"
embraced them with open arms, because they're helping to disempower
American workers, and they splutter with self-righteous moral
people who have "committed no crime" [sic] are arrested for breaking
the immigration laws!]
ROBERTS: And a lot of tobacco farmers and cigarette companies
go out of business.
DONALDSON: They should go out of business, Cokie.
BRINKLEY: Well, they're making a ton of money selling tobacco
BRINKLEY: Do you know what the world's largest selling
product of any description is?
DONALDSON: I think you've telegraphed it. What is it?
BRINKLEY: Marlboro cigarettes.
WILL: Is that right?
BRINKLEY: Marlboro is the largest selling consumer product in
ROBERTS: I'm curious about this litigation because what
Now we know secondhand smoke causes cancer. At what point are you then
able to sue? Can your employer say, "Well, I didn't know it at the
time. The government only came out with this report in 1993?"
DONALDSON: The tobacco companies have engaged in a conspiracy
about 45 years to try to obstruct the truth on smoking and health.
ROBERTS: But everybody knew smoking was bad. You'd have to be
in a cave not to know that smoking was bad for you.
DONALDSON: The companies, in response to this report, David,
press conference saying, "Well, there hasn't been any final conclusive
proof. This just comes from people who don't like cigarettes."
ROBERTS: But look, that's just an excuse to not take
for your own actions.
DONALDSON: How do they live with themselves? How do these
executives go home and live with themselves?
BRINKLEY: You'll have to ask them.

BROADCAST EXCERPT. By RadioTV Reports.)
ANNOUNCER: February 25th, 1993.
SAM DONALDSON, ANCHOR: Tonight, a PRIME TIME investigation.
ANTHONY CARLUCCI: Quit this lie. Quit telling this lie.
DONALDSON: The charge: For 40 years, the tobacco industry has
conspired to obscure the truth about smoking and health.
MAN: It has not been established that cigarette smoke --
MAN: The bottom line is that we simply don't know --
MAN: It is not a closed case.
DR. KENNETH WARNER: This is one of the most reprehensible
of corporate behavior gone wrong that has ever existed in history of
fact, Philip Morris has
been controlled by the
all these years. It was taken over in the 1950s with financing from J.
Russell Forgan, dirty trickster of the O.S.S. and C.I.A., with the
intent to turn it into a Judas Goat to lead the industry to
destruction. On PM's board of directors sat Edward Lasker,
stepmother was health fascist uber-lobbyist Mary Woodard Lasker;
Forgan's O.S.S. buddy, William J.
was a director of the Lasker
Foundation. She and her accomplices in the American
controlled the policy and funding of the National Institutes of Health
- which they turned into their private, tax-funded propaganda factory
to persecute smokers and force health fascist tyranny on the American
people. They acted in concert with other anti-smokers who conspired to
take over the other companies - and the "corporate behavior gone wrong"
is that 1) the companies have been controlled by their enemies; and 2)
the corporate media psychopaths have deliberately and systematically
fed us lies all these years, and purposely censored the truth.]
DONALDSON: Also, a mystery: why a cigarette that might have
lives was deliberately kept from consumers.
They wanted to see if they could develop a safe cigarette.
DR. JAMES MOLD: Correct.
DONALDSON: All right. What happened?
DR. JAMES MOLD: We did.
"Safer Cigarette" has never been anything but a ploy to trick smokers
into supporting more funding for their own arch-enemies, the chemical
carcinogenesis gangsters at the National Cancer Institute, through
their sock-puppet, the phony smokers' rights group, FORCES. The
research the chemical nazis pursue would generate lots of "scary
chemicals" propaganda to benefit the anti-smoking hysteria, and it
would never expose the fact that the anti-smokers have deliberately
used defective studies to falsely blame smoking and secondhand smoke
for diseases that are really caused by infection. Furthermore, if
the cigarette companies broach the subject of safer cigarettes, they
are rabidly attacked by the anti-smokers who accuse them of "deceiving
the public." Finally, smokers don't like those products, so they
sell them anyhow. None of which is mentioned by these pieces of
anti-smoker media filth whose pretended "investigation" is really just
a cover-up submerged in a sewer of lies, half-truths and innuendos.]
ANNOUNCER: From ABC News, with anchors Diane Sawyer,
Donaldson, chief correspondent Chris Wallace, Judd Rose, Jay Schadler,
Sylvia Chase, John Quinones, and Renee Pouzant, this is PRIMETIME.
ANNOUNCER: PRIMETIME. Now, from Washington, Sam Donaldson.
DONALDSON: Good evening and welcome. Diane Sawyer is on
We'll tell you more about that later.
Tonight we begin with a look at smoking and health and how the
tobacco companies have worked over the years to confuse the public on
this vital issue. [Sic - by collaborating with the anti-smokers!]
Now, let me say right up front, that I personally have been
crusading against smoking for more than 20 years, and, believe me, we
ex-smokers can be worse than reformed drunks. I am not unbiased when it
comes to believing the government warning carried on every cigarette
pack about the hazards of smoking.
But none of us here at PRIMETIME had prejudged the subject of
reports tonight. We conducted a four-month-long investigation which
found that for 40 years, the tobacco companies have waged a
carefully-orchestrated campaign to hide the truth in order to fend off
regulation and lawsuits and keep the profits pouring in.
He is an absolutely unquestioning true believer who is
incapable of exercising any degree of skepticism about the health
claims of politically-connected charlatans. Furthermore, he and the
rest of the hacks at PRIMETIME were given their jobs for precisely this
reason. And the pretense that the cigarette companies could "hide the
truth" when the major research was conducted by their enemies is simply
laughable on its face; the only hiding which was possible for them to
engage in, would be on the
anti-smokers' own behalf, by
silent about their scientific frauds in order to further their agenda
of regulation and invite lawsuits - while generously hemorrhaging their
customers' money to their customers' enemies.]
It all began, we discovered, back in the early 1950s.
Worried about smoking? Listen to the tobacco industry over the
years, and you won't be quite so worried.
anti-smoking conspiracy took root in a big way in 1937, when the
American Cancer Society's predecessor, the American Society for the
Control of Cancer, finagled the creation of the National Cancer
Institute, which they took over as their own.]
MAN: It has not been established that cigarette smoking --
MAN: The bottom line is that we simply don't know --
MAN: It is not a closed case. The fact is --
MAN: I don't know that they're harmful or harmless. What I'm
MAN: When the answers are found, I think this industry is
come out all right.

to the 21st, for God's sake?
are all nothing but sham opposition, designed to impress ignorant
simpletons who can't conceive that any body of evidence exists beyond
the mass media propaganda they are fed by ABC News and its partners in
crime. The cigarette companies have collaborated with the anti-smokers
by foisting this on the public as their supposed "fight." It actually
IS a closed case that a known-carcinogenic virus,
HPV, is found in at least ten times more lung
cancers than the
anti-smokers pretend are caused by secondhand smoke - yet the
anti-smokers and their media accomplices have refused to acknowledge
this reality - along with cigarette companies! And, the anti-smoking
charlatans are actually frozen in
the 19th century world of chemicals and religious prejudices about

insider ever to break ranks with the industry's line. Carlucci, a
toxicologist, was the Director of Smoking and Health at the R.J.

did Carlucci have to say about the role of infection in diseases caused
by smoking? Nothing. Therefore, he has not 'broken with the industry's
