CDC Embeds Big Pharma PR Firms

Nice and cozy.

This is all you need to know about how the CDC and FDA really operate.

Are you starting to see how the gears of the machine work?

Congress Must Hold the CDC Accountable for Cozy Ties to Pharma

2023-11-29

Why won't congressional investigators force the CDC Director to explain why Pfizer and Moderna’s PR firm is embedded at the agency’s vaccine center?

Having run congressional investigations for several years, I’m confused why the Energy and Commerce committee has done so little peeking into COVID scandals at the CDC—many of which I have documented during the last couple of years. Congressional staff work long hours and often don’t have the time to look into every problem, but how can the CDC regain public trust when employees with the PR firm for Pfizer and Moderna staff the CDC’s Vaccine Center?

Last October, I discovered that employees with the global PR firm Weber Shandwickare embedded at the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD), the CDC group that implements vaccine programs. Weber Shandwick won this multi-million dollar CDC contract back in September 2020, during COVID pandemic’s first year. 

...

Despite sending a slew of emails to the CDC—some directly to the CDC Director—I never got an explanation for this obvious conflict of interest. Senator Rand Paul later sent the CDC a letter, but the agency ignored him. Will the House Committee demand answers?

WIND: the CDC and FDA do not work for you and me. They work themselves and for Big Pharma, with a lucrative revolving door for staffers.

Whether it is selling influence via artwork for enormous prices by a public figure but unknown artist who probably doesn’t even paint them, or lucrative jobs after a stint at a government agency like the CDC or FDA, bribery is totally legal everywhere in and around government—just in sophisticated and perfectly legal ways.
