"ConsumerFreedom" Attacks Greenpeace in Newsweek

Tobacco lobbyist Rick Berman began his Guest Choice Network with $600,000 from Philip Morris. This month he renamed his tobacco front group "ConsumerFreedom.com" and under that name is running a full page ad on the back cover of today's Weekly Standard attacking the animal rights group PETA. Another full page ad in the January 28 issue of Newsweek attacks Greenpeace. The Newsweek ad features a quote from Patrick Moore, a former Greenpeacer who now trades on his past to make money attacking environmental groups for corporate interests. In the ad Moore calls Greenpeace "a band of scientific illiterates who use Gestapo tactics."
