MBD's Tobacco Work Exposed

Last year Jack Mongoven, founder of the secretive PR spy firm of Mongoven, Biscoe & Duchin, died of lung cancer, ironically becoming a victim himself of the very industry that helped make him wealthy. In its upcoming June issue, Tobacco Control Online, a scientific publication of the British Medical Journal Publishing Group, is publishing a detailed report by Stacy Carter on MBD's extensive work for the tobacco industry, which included spying on activists, nonprofit organizations and international health agencies to "gather intelligence and provide strategic advice to damage tobacco control efforts." Currently available online as a free PDF download, Carter's report offers information that has never previously been published from internal tobacco industry documents.
