"What -- Us tell fibs of some kind?" - JPG
On April 14, 1994, the Chief Executive Officers of the seven largest tobacco companies in the United States testified before the House Subcommittee on Health and the Environment that they did not "believe" that nicotine was addictive. Indications that these CEOs were hardly being candid surfaced in the spring of 1996. Herb Block comments, "Internal documents showed a consistent pattern of knowledge and concealing of information on calculated efforts to promote and increase cigarette addiction." He portrays the CEOs with Pinocchio noses.
