Chris Mooney’s Pharmaceutical Influence
By Jake Crosby
He is the drug industry’s newer, trendier go-to guy in the media, replacing the role of Arthur Allen, who took a break to write about tomatoes. An ex-patriot of “Science”Blogs who now blogs for Discover, and contributing editor to Science Progress, Chris Mooney is perhaps Pharma’s newest writer who has taken on the task of spoon-feeding its message to the public.
From there it is smears all the way down. You can read the whole thing here. My favorite sentence:
Yet despite the previously described mingling with obvious denialists and plagiarists, Chris Mooney is perhaps most notorious in the autism community….
You complete the sentence. But make sure to include the word “Pharma” at least twice….
PS: Orac has more on Jake Crosby’s endeavors…..written pretty kindly, as I think this particular case deserves.
