Jimmy Dore | “Pfizer Intentionally Deceived And Defrauded”: US Justice Department
In 2006, Pfizer paid $2.3 billion, the largest fine ever assessed to a pharmaceutical company, over allegations the company committed fraud in promoting off-label uses for the drug Bextra. Yet shockingly, none of the company executives went to prison and a few lower-level managers were given slaps on the wrist.
Jimmy and comedian Kurt Metzger discuss this colossal case of fraud and why the major pharmaceutical company was able to escape with only a fine, albeit a substantial one.
