Julian & Wikileaks Aren’t Bastions of Press Freedom

Trump.  Part of the blame for his election, and there are many to blame, goes to Julian Assange and Wikileaks. They didn't release documents from the GOP as well as the Democrats.  They've therefore demostrated their bias and lack of neutrality.  They're not leaking things for the right reasons.  They're doing it all from a … Continue reading Julian & Wikileaks Aren’t Bastions of Press Freedom

Big Pharma Corruption Gets Away With It Again

Pfizer. But no one's going to jail. This multi-billion-dollar Pharma corporation is shelling out a patry $24 million in fines. Like they did before. Several times. Know who else is fined but never goes to jail for fraud, or for failing to properly test their products before they go to market? Merck (pills) Johnson & … Continue reading Big Pharma Corruption Gets Away With It Again
