Today's Influence Ads: Beverage Association Pushes Back

Days after New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg proposed prohibiting vendors like restaurants and movie theaters from selling large sodas and other sugary drinks, the American Beverage Association has a new ad today arguing that these types of drinks are not behind increased obesity rates, according to a compilation of print influence ads by Kantar Media's Campaign Media Analysis Group. "Are soda and sugar-sweetened beverages driving obesity?" the ad says. "Not according to the facts."

As today's Washington Eye shows, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and United Technologies have new ads.

Others with ads today are CTIA, CVS Caremark, MSNBC, Northrop Grumman, the Nuclear Energy Institute, Siemens, Society for Human Resource Management, United Healthcare, Volkswagen, WellPoint, WTOP and a group of organizations calling for the repeal of the medical device tax.
