Muris: Let's squash deceptive diet ads

Publish date:

Federal Trade Commission chairman Timothy Muris is asking the National
Association of Broadcasters to dissuade member radio and TV stations from airing
deceptive weight-loss ads.

Muris met with the NAB's joint board Thursday to discuss his agency's attempt
to stop deceptive advertisements for weight-loss products.

Muris claimed that fraudulent ads for weight-loss products are airing more
frequently, and broadcasters can help to rein them in.
