Disturbing Drugs

In the most disgusting display of capitalism this side of the I don't know where Wired Blog posts about PharmaTV. Four companies, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Novartis and Procter & Gamble are behind this disgusting "educational" television channel. The article can be found in the Guardian. I am deeply disturbed by this precedent. At least you can tell the difference between an ad and a show. True, even these days product placement, fake blogs, etc. continue to blur the lines.
The Gene Sherpa Says: What's next? DTC Gene TV? Shame on all of you.
