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.

Loretta Wilson: Electroshock survivor and MindFreedom Michigan liaison

I joined MindFreedom after learning about the Ray Sandford campaign. It was so good to find a group with a common goal. Feeling the support, knowing I'm not alone has been very comforting. It was such a relief to find this organization. Keep up the good work! I am a survivor of 58 electroshocks with a strong desire to see electroshock abolished. I am willing to talk to anyone who is willing to listen. I have even talked to some who don't want to hear about it! I had post-procedure pain from my electroshock. I struggle daily with memory loss from electroshock. I am 69 years old, widowed, mother of 5, grandmother of 7 and great grandma to my new baby girl, 'Sophie.' She's beautiful!
