Washington Post Gets Award for Reporting on Corrupt Pharma Practices

Monday, 18 February 2013 06:22

This one is well-deserved. The Post got the George W. Polk award for Medical Reporting for the series “Biased Research, Big Profits” by Peter Whoriskey. It was a well-researched and reported series. I take back 17 of the bad things I've said about the WAPO. I'm not commenting on how many that leaves.

Excellent report, especially including over 700 comments. Remarkable that it's still accessible given Big Pharma's penchant to suppress free speech wherever it dares raise its threatening voice with competitive alternatives, including how Big Pharma crushed most of them.
A very illuminating article

Here, the day before yesterday, I was thinking about it, and wondering where I'd filed the link. A pity there is so little of this kind of quality reporting on health issues.
