They know BBC is "reliable" - pro-government, pro-business and dismissive of the public trust it disdains. Now more than ever.
On the heels of shocking revelations that top psychiatric research Dr. Joseph Biederman secretly took $1.6 million from drug companies while conducting psychotropic drug experiments on children, it has been learned that Dr. Biederman is now one of the key collaborators behind the latest efforts to discredit St. John's Wort.

One of the over 120 Israeli "art students" who cased federal office buildings and military bases during a year and a half before the 9/11 attacks has revealed details of her "assignment" in the United States to a WMR source.
The Israeli woman was granted access to the United States on a student visa and she was identified as an "art student" in her visa application. It was later discovered that none of the Israeli "art students" were, in fact, art students.
