  • Hartmann: Does big tobacco have the RIGHT to lie?

    Imagine there's an industry that sells a product that kills 1200 people every single day. And that's not because 1200 people misuse the product - but because the product ACTUALLY causes death when it's used as directed. Now imagine this industry has been given free reign to sell their product for decades - killing more people around the nation every decade than have died in all our wars from the Revolutionary War in 1776 to World War II to Vietnam and Afghanistan - combined. There's a lot of risk just in that. But then they doubled down - when Congress asked the CEOs of the corporations that make this industry to testify about just how destructive their product is - they lie right through their teeth. You see, corporate law has evolved over the years to the point where there's virtually no...

Propaganda, Public Relations, Marketing, and Advertising: Ivy Lee and Edward Bernays Propaganda has been around basically since the dawn of man in one form or another. But when it comes to modern propaganda, there are a few names that stand out. This documentary focuses on the origins of modern propaganda, and the practical applications. Ivy Ledbetter Lee was an American publicity expert and a founder of modern public relations. (The term Public Relations is to be found for the first time in the preface of the 1897 Yearbook of Railway Literature). He is best known for his public relations work with the Rockefeller family. His first major client was the Pennsylvania Railroad, followed by numerous major railroads such as the New York Central, the Baltimore and Ohio, and the Harriman lines such as the Union Pacific. He established the Association of Railroad Executives, which included providing public relations services to the industry. Lee advised major industrial corporations, including steel, automobile, tobacco, meatpacking, and rubber, as well as public utilities, banks, and even foreign governments. Lee pioneered the use of internal magazines to maintain employee morale, as well as management newsletters, stockholder reports, and news releases to the media. He did a great deal of pro bono work, and during World War I, he became the publicity director for the American Red Cross. Edward Louis James Bernays was an Austrian-American pioneer in the field of public relations and propaganda, referred to in his obituary as "the father of public relations." He combined the ideas of Gustave Le Bon and Wilfred Trotter on crowd psychology with the psychoanalytical ideas of his uncle, Sigmund Freud. He felt this manipulation was necessary in society, which he regarded as irrational and dangerous as a result of the "herd instinct" that Trotter had described. Adam Curtis's award-winning 2002 documentary for the BBC, The Century of the Self, pinpoints Bernays as the originator of modern public relations, and Bernays was named one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th century by Life magazine.

Japanese/Nat The incoming President of Japan's second largest bank, Dai-ichi Kangyo told shareholders Friday that the bank will never again be involved with racketeers. A record number of 2-thousand 355 listed and unlisted companies held their annual shareholders' meetings across Japan on Friday. The high concentration of shareholders' meetings in one day continued this year amid controversy over the nature of the meetings and the interests of shareholders in connection with a payoff scandal involving Nomura Securities Co. and Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank (D-K-B). Dai-ichi Kangyo bank depositors protesting outside the annual general meeting Friday, angry at the bank's pay-off scandal to racketeers. Scores of police guarded the bank's headquarters to prevent racketeers from disrupting the shareholder meeting. D-K-B and Nomura securities are accused of having provided a huge amount of profits to a "sokaiya" corporate racketeer to prevent other racketeers from blackmailing the companies by disturbing the meetings. Facing criticism against their closed meetings, the brokerage and the bank opened the meetings to the public. Shareholders welcomed the move. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "The whole scandal annoyed us. I am afraid that all the money we saved at the bank might evaporates as a result. If that happens, we will have to go find a new bank. I am attending the meeting today. I'd like to tell the management people that they have to run their business properly." SUPER CAPTION: Vox Pop, D-K-B shareholder SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "I hope the bank will overcome the scandal quickly and become a trustworthy bank as they used to be. SUPER CAPTION: D-K-B shareholder One shareholder asked the bank whether it will continue its relationship with racketeers. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "With this newly formed management system, we are very much determined to break off relationship with them (racketeers) from now on." SUPER CAPTION: Katsuyuki Sugita, newly appointed president of D-K-B Nomura made public shareholders' questions and its executives' answers at the shareholders' meeting via the Internet, while D-K-B allowed reporters to watch its meeting on TV monitors. Nomura and D-K-B vowed to cut ties with sokaiya corporate racketeers in the wake of the payoff scandal, in which four Nomura and 10 D-K-B executives have been arrested. Police say they are first investigating the companies before moving in on the racketeers. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "As a result, it will be impossible to eliminate these racketeers unless we couple our efforts to crack down on them with simultaneous actions against the Mafia that back them up." SUPER CAPTION: Kazuo Miyamoto, Director of Second Organised Crime Control Division, National Police Agency A record number of 2-thousand 355 listed and unlisted companies held their annual shareholders' meetings across Japan Friday. The total exceeds the previous record marked last year by 114 and represents 88 percent of all companies scheduled to hold their shareholders' meetings in June.

But Philip Morris denied that Mr. McLaren was ever a model for the Marlboro Man campaign. Karen Daragan, a company spokeswoman, said neither Philip Morris nor its advertising agency, Leo Burnett, had any records to verify Mr. McLaren's assertion. But to support it, Mr. McLaren had produced an affidavit from Robert W. Kenneally saying Mr. Kenneally founded the Associated Talent agency in Beverly Hills, Calif., represented Mr. McLaren for 11 years and contracted for his work with Burnett. Attached to the affidavit was a 1984 Associated Talent pay check stub for Mr. McLaren with a notation that the fee was for a "Marlboro print" job. Earlier this year Mr. McLaren testified at a hearing on proposed anti-smoking legislation in Massachusetts. Last week he said he hoped what happened to him would discourage others from smoking, especially young people. "I've spent the last month of my life in an incubator," he said, "and I'm telling you, it's just not worth it." He is survived by his wife, Ellen; his mother, Louise, of Lake Charles, La., and two brothers, Charles and John, and a sister, Marie Lynn Sellers Morrow, all of Houston.

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A revenue stamp, tax stamp or fiscal stamp is a (usually) adhesive label used to collect taxes or fees on documents, tobacco, alcoholic drinks, drugs and medicines, playing cards, hunting licenses, firearm registration, and many other things. Typically businesses purchase the stamps from the government, and attach them to taxed items as part of putting the items on sale, or in the case of documents, as part of filling out the form. Revenue stamps often look very similar to postage stamps, and in some countries and time periods it has been possible to use postage stamps for revenue purposes. Revenue stamps are stamps used to collect taxes and fees. They are issued by governments, national and local, and by official bodies of various kinds. They take many forms and may be gummed and ungummed, perforated or imperforate, printed or embossed, and of any size. In many countries, they are as detailed in their design as banknotes and they are often made from the same type of paper. The high value of many revenue stamps means that they may contain security devices to prevent counterfeiting. The Revenue Society has defined revenue stamps as " ...stamps, whether impressed, adhesive or otherwise, issued by or on behalf of International, National or Local Governments, their Licensees or Agents, and indicate that a tax, duty or fee has been paid or prepaid or that permission has been granted."

Dr. Greger has scoured the world's scholarly literature on clinical nutrition and developed this brand-new live presentation on the latest in cutting-edge research on how a healthy diet can affect some of our most common medical conditions. In my annual nutrition review last year, Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/uprooting-the-leading-causes-of-death/), I explored the role diet may play in preventing, arresting, and even reversing our top 15 killers. Actually, if you recall, the top 16. Since side effects from prescription drugs kill an estimated 100,000 Americans a year, the sixth leading cause of death may actually be doctors. And that's just from adverse drug reactions. Add in medical mistakes (which the Institute of Medicine estimates kills at least 44,000 Americans) and that brings "health"care up to our country's third leading cause of death. Throw in hospital-acquired infections, and we're talking maybe 187,000 Americans dead every year (and millions injured) by medical care. The best way to avoid the adverse effects of medical and surgical tests and treatments is not to avoid doctors, but to avoid getting sick in the first place. This year I thought I'd run through the top dozen reasons people visit their doctors to highlight some of the latest research in hopes of moving my colleagues and me lower down the list of common killers. So you can more easily navigate through the menu of diseases I cover, this presentation is also available on DVD through my website (http://www.drgreger.org/DVDs) or Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/gp/node/index.html/?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&linkCode=ur2&me=A1QZTUS5K8MU75&tag=httpwwwdrgreg-20). If you want to share copies with others I have a five for $40 (http://www.drgreger.org/DVDs) special. All proceeds from the sales of all my books, DVDs, and presentations all go to charity.
