http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/industries/74391421/did-coke-influence-antiobesity-group-global-energy-balance-network

A non-profit organisation founded to combat obesity says the $1.5 million ($2.29 million) it received from Coke has no influence on its work.

But emails show the world's largest beverage maker was instrumental in shaping the Global Energy Balance Network, which is led by a professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
 
Coke helped pick the group's leaders, edited its mission statement and suggested articles and videos for its website.
 
In an email last November, the group's president told a top Coke executive: "I want to help your company avoid the image of being a problem in peoples' lives and back to being a company that brings important and fun things to them..."

What a joke.

It happens all the time. Just like our police shaping the way crime
is reported and researched. Just like the TPPA being drip fed to the
press by only two people. It's happening everywhere.
