Our news outlets are now majority funded by pharma. In another record year for pharma TV ads, more than 70% of advertising is spent by big pharma ($5B).

If you watch television for any amount of time, you’re probably going to see a drug commercial that tugs on your heart strings, promises to heal your worst medical conditions, and then a voiceover will quickly gloss over the multitude of side effects in a too-quick-to-understand string of monotone words. Prescription medications are are multi-BILLION dollar industry that’s making not only the pharmaceutical companies tons of money, but also the network television stations. How is this influencing public opinion AND health?

Are you annoyed yet how much these ads are on TV?   Equally concerning is that pharmaceutical advertising is banned in just about every country except the United States and New Zealand. And consider this: the average American watches 16 hours of pharmaceutical commercials each year which is more time than they spend with their primary physician. One-third of these people ask their doctors about a drug advertisement and most request a prescription.

Are any these companies responsible for the negative PR campaigns to smear Dr. Judy Mikovitz theory PhD Scientist "A Vaccine Could Be Causing The Covid-19 Pandemic"?  All of these debunking articles are trying to discredit Judy's reputation and none of them really are answering the true questions that she raises.
