Whistle Blower Blowout


It's Whistle-Blower week in Washington DC (see "Washington Whistleblower Week") and Peter Rost is steaming along with more whistle blowers coming out on his blog. For the latest see "Pfizer Finance Executive Blows the Whistle - Part One."

Is it just me that feels overloaded with whistle blowers?

I kind of fell asleep halfway through this latest revelation about the sale of some Pfizer plant in India. I don't think I'll be tuning in to part two of this story.

These financial shenanigans are never likely to rise to the level of the simple (now legendary) "buckets of cash" story that Peter broke some time ago. Corruption regarding the sale of a plant in India has very little relevance to "me", which is what is really important. Maybe that's why not many other blogs are picking up on this latest whistle blower story.

I am sorry, John, but I am going to have to disagree with this posting. It almost sounds apologist in nature. I think we only need to see the cloud over Cernobyl to know the global implication of Pfizer's callous disregard for human lives that are not their own bottom line or bucket of money. Please reconsider, the best movies, like news stories, start out slowly... have patience Alpha.

I stand corrected: Several blogs have picked up on this, as Peter points out: see http://peterrost.blogspot.com/2007/05/pfizer-finance-executive-blows-whistle_17.html#links
