Negative Reporting About Iraqi Vets

Can the NY Times be anymore hypocritical pontificating about drug companies cooking the books on clinical trials when it has transparently done so with respect in it's efforts to depict our soldiers as homicidal maniacs?

And this is not the first time that a so-called objective source has fudged numbers in favor of an agenda. A Soros-funded researcher was behind the oft-stated, inaccurate, but never retracted number of 450,000 deaths due to the Iraq war that ran in Lancet. Read this article from the National Journal about this debacle. In the report the authors also note a study that ran in Lancet by a guy who fakes a story on the heels of the Vioxx scare about the risks of other anti-inflammatory meds. The media bought it hook line and sinker because it wasn't pharma funded. I am sure Health Care ReSewer commented favorably.

Of course the research was not paid for by Pharma so there is no bias.

More on so-called objective no-ax to grind types who criticize us that receive Soros and tort lawyer funding later.
