Fox News on Big Tobacco’s Payroll?

Reported by Janie - January 26, 2006

Steven Milloy, science reporter for Foxnews.com, is coming under fire for articles he wrote for Fox's website denouncing the dangers of second-hand smoke while he was on the payroll of Altria, the parent company of Phillip Morris. Malloy, who has been affiliated with Foxnews.com since 2000, wrote two articles in the spring of 2001 including one entitled "Secondhand Smokescreen". According to Phillip Morris' 2001 budget report, Milloy was listed as a consultant with a budget of $92,000 in fees and expenses for both 2000 and 2001.
