Reason Magazine is published by the libertarian Reason Foundation and is used to bash environmentalists and promote the industries that fund it, including tobacco. One of its editors Jacob Sullum has been described by RP Watch as an “apologist” for the tobacco industry and “one of the most vociferous defenders of the tobacco industry in print today”. This has led editor Andrew Skolnick, an editor at the Journal of the American Medical Association to say of Sullum that he “ accuses the EPA of corrupting science and cites many of the tobacco industry's arguments that so far have persuaded virtually no one in medicine and public health who are not recipients of tobacco industry money”[15].
