Steven Milloy wäre nicht die Person meines Vertrauens.

Ja, kann ich anhand Ihrer Links nachvollziehen.

Enge Freunde von George Carlo, wie Thorne Auchter oder Jim Tozzi sehen das offensichtlich differenzierter.

Zur Person:
James J. (Jim) Tozzi



Carlo took Thorne G. Auchter (ex Director of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) into his organization as a silent partner (and possibly also James J. Tozzi (ex head of the OIRA at the Reagan White House). These three were close friends and worked closely together as lobbyists and science-corrupters for the tobacco industry for many years. One of the astroturfs run by Tozzi and Auchter, the Institute for Regulatory Policy, was supposedly the funder, controller and publisher of the Philip Morris/Carlo bias study.

Early in his career, Milloy worked for a company called Multinational Business Services, a Washington lobby shop that Philip Morris described as its “primary contact” on the issue of secondhand cigarette smoke in the early 1990s. Later, he became executive director of The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition (TASSC), an organization that was covertly created by Philip Morris for the express purpose of generating scientific controversy regarding the link between secondhand smoke and cancer.

In 1986 Thorne Auchter and James Tozzi founded Federal Focus, a Philip Morris-funded 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. At the end of 1991 Thorne Auchter founded the Institute for Regulatory Policy (IRP) as a subsidiary of Federal Focus and James Tozzi changed his focus to his company Multinational Business Services (MBS) founded around 1992. [2] The "EPA Watch" of May 15, 1992 mentioned Jim Tozzi as the "director of the Washington-based Multinational Business Services Inc. (MBS)". [3] At about the same time, Tozzi became involved in pro-tobacco activities for Philip Morris.
