Is it possible that mainstream journalists have rediscovered their integrity and desire to tell the truth? Have the increasingly urgent cries of “fake news!” caused some to find and dust off their consciences? It certainly seems that at least some have been less reluctant to do their jobs recently. The New York Times’ willingness to finally reveal the predatory control Harvey Weinstein maintained over young Hollywood actresses for decades, despite the mainstream media’s stubborn insistence on shielding celebrities in recent years, is one example of how the tide seems to be turning.

And now both The Washington Post and The Guardian – those very middle of the river mainstream news outlets – have written scathing exposes of Big Pharma, specifically related to its shameless feeding of the U.S. opioid epidemic.

Of course, independent media outlets like Natural News have been swimming upstream for years to expose the greed of the pharmaceutical giants. The mainstream media, on the other hand, has maintained a deafening silence.

At any rate, they seem to have finally woken up to their responsibilities – at least when it comes to exposing the link between Big Pharma and the opioid epidemic.

President Trump has made dealing with this epidemic a top priority, and with good reason: CNN reports that between 2010 and 2016, the number of people addicted to legal and/or street opioids skyrocketed by 493 percent. Sadly, during that same time period, the increase in the number of people seeking help for their condition only grew by 65 percent.

One of the biggest contributing factors to this out-of-control problem was outlined in an article published in the journal Pain Physician:

Over the past 20 years, the liberalization of laws governing the prescribing of opioids for the treatment of chronic non-cancer pain by the state medical boards has led to dramatic increases in opioid use. This has evolved into the present stage, with the introduction of new pain management standards by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) in 2000, an increased awareness of the right to pain relief, the support of various organizations supporting the use of opioids in large doses, and finally, aggressive marketing by the pharmaceutical industry. These positions are based on unsound science and blatant misinformation, and accompanied by the dangerous assumptions that opioids are highly effective and safe, and devoid of adverse events when prescribed by physicians.
