Description

This story is an exploration of the tactics used by the Food and Drug Administration to control media coverage. The agency cultivates a coterie of journalists whom it keeps in line with threats, while it denies others access, even deceiving them with half-truths in attempts to handicap them in their pursuit of a story. At the same time, it uses a controversial tool -- the so-called "close-hold embargo" -- to exert control over the media, even though using that tool is a direct violation of FDA's (and HHS') written policy. https://www.documentcloud.org/public/search/Project:%20%22FDA%20Embargo%20documents%22
