NY Times continues spotlight on Eli Lilly's corruption involving Zyprexa

— filed under:

The New York Times ran a new story on 23 March 2007 that again exposes corruption by Eli Lilly in its promotion of its psychiatric drug Zyprexa. The Times has run quite a number of pieces ever since the formerly-secret Zyprexa files were exposed by PsychRights founder attorney Jim Gottstein, who leaked the documents to NY Times journalist Alex Berenson.

NY Times continues exposure of Eli Lilly's corrupt and illegal marketing practices involving Zyprexa



Despite The New York Times widespread coverage of the secret files, Eli Lilly did not name The NY Times in its request for a permanent order from US District Court, although the judge himself claimed The NY Times played played an active role in obtaining the documents.

Mainstream media is usually so silent when it comes to covering psychiatric drug hazards, that this silence may have helped motivate the lawyer and doctor who originally blew the whistle on Eli Lilly documents. Court documents claim The NY Times may have offered to cover the story as long as the paper was promised an exclusive. Jim Gottstein is founder of PsychRights, which is a sponsor group of MindFreedom International.

Cindi Fisher, mother of psychiatric survivor

Cindi Fisher has fought for years for her son, who has experienced forced psychiatric drugging and other human rights violations in the State of Washington. She has even held protest fasts on her son's behalf (see photo of Day One). Cindi says: "In the past, advocating for my 33-year-old psychiatric survivor son over the years has been very frustrating and has sometimes felt hopeless! Now, as a member of MindFreedom, I feel I have the voice of thousands to join me. My effectiveness and awareness as an advocate has indeed multiplied a thousand times. Thank you David and MindFreedom for your many years of work to build such a powerful and empowering organization!"
