Director David H.
Spain also pointed to what he referred to as "gobbledygook in the CAMY
report, citing the following passage:
Jesse Brown of CAMY
stated, "It is evident that the alcohol industry is not adequately monitoring its own advertising and that the current standards and practice fail to protect youth from overly aggressive alcohol marketing.
More spending on television, especially on cable, translates into kids seeing more and more alcohol ads," said David Jernigan, executive director of CAMY
