The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) alleging that alcohol producers were targeting their products to persons under the age of 21.
After carefully conducting a year-long investigation that examined all the evidence, including research by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms into internal company documents, product placement in stores, and extensive other evidence, the FTC ruled that CSPI's complaint was without merit. It found no evidence "that the products and their advertising are targeted to consumers under 21."
Shortly thereafter, the anti-alcohol organization held another a press conference repeating the charge that underage persons are being "targeted." Its press release, "Kids in the Crosshairs of Big Booze," makes the same proven-false allegation. This, after the federal Commission reported that there is no evidence to support CSPI's charge.
What part of no doesn't CSPI understand?
The Center for Science in the Pubic Interest clearly isn't interested in science, facts, evidence, proof or truth; it's only interested in propaganda. Perhaps it should be called the Center for Science in the Interest of Publicity.
