'Fag Firms Fume', forsooth

We can see why a Marxist-Leninist newspaper should be worried about this honesty order;
US TOBACCO companies are fuming after a federal judge ordered them to describe themselves as unscrupulous villains who continue to deceive the public.
In an appeals court filing on Wednesday, the industry claimed that statements ordered by US District Judge Gladys Kessler in a government lawsuit would trigger public anger against the companies and should be scrapped.
Judge Kessler had ordered several of the largest cigarette makers to admit that they had lied for decades about the dangers of smoking and to publicise a federal court conclusion that Altria, RJ Reynolds Tobacco, Lorillard and Philip Morris USA had deliberately deceived the public.
If honesty is to become the best legal policy, who shall 'scape whipping?
