My point is that the talking heads of cable land know as much about the drug approval process as I do about monster trucks. And I don’t know anything about monster trucks except what Ed Morrisey has told me (and I still think it is pretty odd that Ed owns one of those eight-foot tire jobs.) The last thing we need is a witch hunt that shutters the drug development process.

Media hysteria is probably killing as many people as bad pharmaceuticals. My wife has had a problem with patients — scared by stuff they’ve heard on TV about anti-depressants causing suicide — stopping their antidepressants and becoming . . . suicidally depressed.

Will Lou Dobbs take the rap for those deaths?
