Surely recall a few months back when I wrote about Restless Legs Syndrome being nothing more than a bullshit disease made up by drug companies to market their products. Well did you catch the Nightly News tonight? Those bastards did a whole piece on Requip and RLS! It was right there in the third act, between the Iraqi Death Count and The Flossing of America. In case you missed it, the video can be seen here. (Sorry, you'll have to sit through a fucking commercial.)
Considering that Requip is an advertiser on NBC, it comes as no surprise that they went easy on them. I mean, they're not going to come right out and call them crooks...even though they clearly are. But I was hoping for at least a soundbite or two from a skeptic. Instead, NBC News just did a free three-minute ad for GlaxoSmithKlineFunkAndWagnalls. Is nothing sacred anymore??!
I wish to point out there is no hidden advertising here on The Mighty Blog. You'll find nothing here except truth, wisdom, and weiner jokes. I will never allow myself to be influenced by outside forces, nor will I sell myself to Madison Avenue in order to make a buck. That's the Dyckerson promise.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to relax, kick up my feet, and enjoy an ice-cold, refreshing bottle of Budweiser. Budweiser...the King of Beers. Available where ever beer is sold. And tell 'em Dyckie sentcha!
