Center for Tobacco, Alcohol and Restaurant Industries Resends Press Release About PETA

It seems like every 6 months or so, the Center for Consumer Freedom, a front group for the tobacco, alcohol and restaurant industries sends out a press release about how many animals PETA allegedly kills. You can read about these people here.

They are then dutifully printed in places like this KC Star blog, although I do see that the guy had the decency to print PETA's response. I'm glad he did that. Phil Defranco did the same thing on his youtube video. Hopefully he will realize his mistake as well.

There are plenty of reasons to not like PETA, but the "Center for Consumer Freedom" is an industry front group who's primary purpose is to attack PETA. And considering their glowing website post on Republican Leader Rush Limbaugh's show along with a quote from the notoriously unfunny "comedian" Dennis Miller, you can pretty well tell what kind of people they represent.
