5. We ought to ban these ads on the same basis we ban tobacco ads from TV.

It's a public health issue. Sadly, in this case money does equal speech.

The American people are subjected to these sort of corporate lies and propaganda pretty much constantly.

It also has the effect of oil companies buying off the media channels, because they pay big bucks to get these ads on the air. So the media are beholden to these goons for money.
