Rights & Reason: The Blind Guiding the Blind

The Federal Trade Commission issued the following media advisory today: "The Federal Trade Commission will host a press conference Tuesday December 9, 2003 to unveil new media guidance for weight loss advertising claims."

Translation: the FTC will tell weight loss advertisers what they can and can't say; any deviation from the FTC's position will result in immediate prosecution. The antitrust assault on the First Amendment continues.
