The New York Times
has an editorial today titled "Big Tobacco Fights Back
," criticizing tobacco companies' lawsuit against new advertising restrictions. Repeatedly, the Times
attributes the lawsuit to "the [tobacco] industry."
But as my former Cato colleague Jacob Grier notes
, the biggest tobacco company (Philip Morris) is on the Times's side in opposing the lawsuit. So wouldn't it make more sense to title the editorial "Medium-Size Tobacco Fights Back"?
