Protecting Corporate Wrongdoing

When one of the most respected radiologists in America – the former head of the radiology department at Yale University – attempted to blow the whistle on the fact that the FDA had approved a medical device manufactured by General Electric because it put out massive amounts of radiation, the FDA installed spyware to record his private emails and surfing activities (including installing cameras to snap pictures of his screen), and then used the information to smear him and other whistleblowers.

Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident, but standard operating procedure. For example, whistleblowers are routinely fired before they can get traction … and then smeared as “disgruntled former employees”.
