How Industry Dollars Reach Your Doctors


By Dan Nguyen, Charles Ornstein, and Tracy Weber, ProPublica

Drug companies have long kept secret details of the payments they make to doctors and other health professionals for promoting their drugs.

How many pharmaceutical companies are there? How much do they pay?

Showing only some few companies, but leaving out all the rest, that is manipulation.

Even more manipulative: to leave out all the companies which sell esoteric bullshit, like Heel and  Boiron.

ProPublica is a fake. How much is it paid by the esoteric mafia? But, be warned: Even if ProPublica does not get a single Cent from the esoteric mafia, it still is manipulating. Why? Because the journalists mess up.
