Why Television Advertisements were banned:

The Fairness Doctrine

In late 1966 John Banzaf inquired to see if a local television station, WCBS-TV, would provide air time for announcements against smoking. The station being sponsored by tobacco refused. Banzhaf filed a complaint, stating the FCC's fairness doctrine required broadcasters to provide free air time to opposing views of matters of public controversy .

On June 2, 1967, the FCC announced its decision that the fairness doctrine applied to the request for anti-smoking announcements. The FCC stated that the public should hear an anti-smoking viewpoint. However, the FCC required only the ratio of one anti-smoking message for each four cigarette advertisements (not the one-to-one ratio suggested by Banzhaf).

  Various governmental and voluntary health organizations made extremely creative spots and provided them to stations. In response, tobacco companies offered to self regulate and stop all advertising on television. Tobacco ads ceased to appear on television at the end of 1970.

John Banzaf went on to establish Action on Smoking an Health
