This article should be pulled out if the ethos of NewsTrust is to be maintained. Poorly researched, opinionated, unbalanced and polemical, it adds nothing to an important issue: that of the impact of Pharma advertising, to doctors, and more dangerously, directly to consumers. The responses, save a couple, are from "doctor bashers" who have an axe to grind. There is no denying that Big Pharma has stepped over too many boundaries in its efforts at maintaining corporate bottom lines. It needs to be checked, but not by articles of this kind.
