Salon has a nice little scoop today. Did you know that when you see a celebrity on TV talking about some medical disorder or another, chances are they’re getting paid by some drug company? You wouldn’t know from the interviews themselves, because the celebrities are not required to disclose that they’re getting paid to shill for these companies, and you wouldn’t know from their hosts because they’re total and complete sleaze. I don’t know if any of my readers would consider getting their stomach stapled because Carnie Wilson talked about how great it is on TV, but be alert.
