Big Pharma’s total corruption and control over U.S. lawmakers now being exposed by the global news media
Is it possible that mainstream journalists have rediscovered their integrity and desire to tell the truth? Have the increasingly urgent cries of “fake news!” caused some to find and dust off their consciences? It certainly seems that at least some have been less reluctant to do their jobs recently. The New York Times’willingness to finally reveal the predatory control Harvey Weinstein maintained over young Hollywood actresses for decades, despite the mainstream media’s stubborn insistence on shielding celebrities in recent years, is one example of how the tide seems to be turning.
And now both The Washington Post and The Guardian – those very middle of the river mainstream news outlets – have written scathing exposes of Big Pharma, specifically related to its shameless feeding of the U.S. opioid epidemic.
Of course, independent media outlets like Natural News have been swimming upstream for years to expose the greed of the pharmaceutical giants. The mainstream media, on the other hand, has maintained a deafening silence. (Related: Big Pharma companies have been systematically suppressing your right to purchase cheaper alternatives from other countries.)
At any rate, they seem to have finally woken up to their responsibilities – at least when it comes to exposing the link between Big Pharma and the opioid epidemic.
President Trump has made dealing with this epidemic a top priority, and with good reason: CNN reports that between 2010 and 2016, the number of people addicted to legal and/or street opioids skyrocketed by 493 percent. Sadly, during that same time period, the increase in the number of people seeking help for their condition only grew by 65 percent.
