Bad Medicine: The Glaxo Case – 60 Minutes – CBS News

Even for a seasoned health care analyst like me, this expose was shocking. It’s worth your time. The idea that a company as prestigious (and wealthy) as GSK could behave so irresponsibly is not only deplorable and shameful, but a violation of the public trust.

This is precisely the reason that organizations that provide our health care should be carefully regulated.

And hats off to Cheryl Eckard, whom some will say did it for the money. But the risks in whistle-blowing are very high and the probability of success very low. She apparently blew the whistle for the right reasons, because a large corporation was committing fraud and possibly worse, just for the money.

Kudos as well to 60 Minutes for airing this.
