NNPA, NABOB Ask U.S. Court to Include Black Press in Tobacco Settlement

The National Newspapers Publishers Association (NNPA) and the National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters (NABOB) on Friday formally asked the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. to have black-owned newspapers and broadcast properties included in the list of required media outlets that tobacco companies must use to place ads outlining the dangers of smoking.

A ruling in 2012 in the U.S. Justice Department's 15-year-old case against the nation's leading tobacco producers required the companies to run "corrective statements" about the harmful effects of their products. On Jan. 10 when the U.S. Department of Justice filed an agreement on the details of those statements, Target Market News disclosed that the list (originally filed in 2006) of where those ads would appear did not include any African-American media outlets.
