This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.

PETA Kills Animas is a front group operated by Berman & Co. Berman & Co. operates a network of dozens of front groups, attack-dog web sites, and alleged think tanks that work to counteract minimum wage campaigns, keep wages low for restaurant workers, and block legislation on food safety, secondhand cigarette smoke, drunk driving, and more.

PETA Kills Animals describes itself as "a project of the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF), a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the full range of choices that American consumers currently enjoy" according to its website.[1] In reality, CCF is another Berman front group that runs media campaigns opposing the efforts of scientists, doctors, health advocates, animal advocates, environmentalists and other groups for restaurant, alcohol, tobacco and other industries.

According to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, PETA Kills Animals "smears People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and promotes negative information about the group’s practices."[2]
