21st Century Fox includes the film and TV units of News Corporation, which was spun off with the company's publishing properties. In 2016, movies contributed $8.5 billion (31%) of the company's $27.3 billion sales. Fox was one the last major studios to publish an internal policy addressing tobacco on screen, in 2012. The percentage of Fox's PG-13 films with smoking has roller-coastered ever since, dropping to 36% in 2015 and jumping to 67% in 2016. While Fox's data sends a mixed message, every tobacco image on screen pushes smoking at kids worldwide.
