Here is the lead the “mainstream” media is running about the GAO report on Plan B:
“Food and Drug Administration officials, months before a scientific review was completed, had already decided to reject over-the-counter sales of the emergency contraceptive pill, also known as Plan B.”
What the GAO actually reported is much less sexy. The GAO interviewed some FDA staffers who claimed they were told that a decision had been made in advance of the evidence. The GAO also reports that top FDA officials firmly deny this accusation — a inconvenient fact that it omitted from most news reports.
As my grandmother used to say, a half-truth is a whole lie.
