A Law to Ban Direct to Consumer Advertising by Pharmaceutical Companies

Direct to Consumer Marketing Corrupts the Media

Recent evidence provided by a CDC insider has demonstrated that the CDC omitted and falsified pediatric vaccine safety research data linking vaccines to autism - and subsequently tried to cover up the evidence. No one in Congress except Rep. William Posey has been willing to stand up and hold the CDC accountable. Senators and Congressional Representatives routine receive campaign support from Pharma, and direct to consumer advertising is the #1 source of revenue for media outlets. As a result, the American People will not hear the truth about issues like vaccine safety research fraud on television, or in their newspapers, television and online programming like CNN, ABC News, CBS News, Fox News, MSNBC News and CBS News.

It's time to return objectivity re: health care options to the media, and to empower our elected officials to speak freely about issues that directly impact the health and well-being of the American people.

The American Medical Association has called for, and we second, a Ban on Direct to Consumer Advertising.

We therefore request a law banning DTC Marketing of pharmaceutical products immediately.
