The editors of the Journal of the American Medical Association reportedly played rough with an academic who blabbed about Big Pharma influence. From MSNBC: “Editors of the Journal of the American Medical Association deny threatening a professor who raised concerns about a study author’s undisclosed financial link to a drug company when JAMA published the study last year. JAMA, like most leading medical journals, has a policy of noting scientists’ industry connections.
According to the Wall Street Journal, JAMA editors threatened to ban the professor from their journal and ruin his medical school’s reputation if he didn’t stop talking to reporters.”
