Doctors Backing Cigarettes

leave a comment »

Last week in class we looked at how a news broadcast was supported by Camel cigarettes. I found this ad from the 1950s http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzCswskqnyw on youtube and it was shocking. Two doctors on the ad were supporting Camel cigarettes. Today doctors back different kinds of medicines. Even though the two gentleman in the ad were probably actors, I dont think Camel would put a billboard up saying “Doctors Approve our Cigarettes” today.
