Quickie: Daily Mail Article About Drug Settlement Doesn’t Name Drug
I go to the Daily Mail website every once in a while because I see it as my TMZ or my People magazine. You know, gossip.
Today I noticed an article there titled: Patients who claim they developed gambling and sex addictions after taking Parkinson’s medication are offered settlement by drug company.
I was drawn to it because my husband has dementia with “Parkinsonism” so the word “Parkinson’s” leapt out at me. He takes a drug prescribed to Parkinsan’s patients for tremors so, you know, I was curious. I wanted to know if the sex and gambling drug was the one he’s taking.
I looked for the name of the drug but after reading the article I shook my head and wondered if I’d missed it because I didn’t see it. So I read it again and it wasn’t there.
I know the Daily Mail is trash journalism but my god, to write an article about a drug that causes compulsive gambling and sex addition and not to mention the name? Really?!!
Isn’t the whole point of so-called news and so-called journalism to provide information and to inform people?
