The Sunday Times’ Recurring Thalidomide Technique

I’ve heard the author of this story Nicholas Hellen is not the nicest of chaps. 

And maybe this story is being released for The Sunday Times to remind its readers of its biggest ever investigation. 

But given its lack of interest in Valproate, I conclude that the lobbyists have learned and modern day ‘Thalidomide scandals’ are now more easily suppressed / managed.

We all know the press is able to play down the significance of one scandal and play up the significance of another.

Which leaves so much room for distortion and inconsistency.  

I believe we are ruled by a power structure that fears truth and goes to enormous lengths to hide it.

The resulting erosion of trust leads to withdrawal & extremism – which only benefits the entities with the most to gain & hide.
