The Mainstream Media Stirs

An article in The Scotsman today (25th July ‘05) slams the treatment of depression as “not one of the triumphs of modern medicine.”

The article goes on to say: “Arguably it (the treatment of depresssion) portrays interventionism at its worst, and the medical practitioner at his least discerning. Profit-making by the pharmaceutical industry has dictated diagnosis and treatment of the disease for the last 13 years.”

Well done to The Scotsman for running with the story, but why is there so much silence still from so much of the mainstream media... and why did no mainstream media outlet at all run with it until Tom Cruise literally forced the issue onto them?

What is the matter with our mainstream media that they so shamelessly put their own self interest dictated by the advertising dollars of Big Pharma above the well-being of the public they claim to inform? They know the story, they have known for years.

One day in the not too distant future harsh questions are going to be asked of the mainstream media about their complicity in this horrific psychiatric/pharmaceutical scam.
