"We feel a responsibility and a desire to speak out on behalf of the 97 million smokers in Europe.

There is a constant drumbeat on the issue that my smoke is hurting you. That is the principle we are working on, because it is not backed by the evidence.”

–David Greenberg, Vice President EU Corporate Affairs, Philip Morris Corporate Services, attempting to pass off their new ad campaign as a plea for smokers’ rights. [As quoted in the June 4, 1996 Reuter European Business Report.]


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
