It is mindboggling that people don't seem to think a company earning billions and billions in extra income isn't going to spend the majority of it on marketing...

Hell you can find Reddit censoring thousands of stories about negative effects of medication and side effects simply because Merck paid them a shitload to do it.

The issue isn’t the Drug Maker’s motives, it’s the credibility and journalistic integrity of 60 Minutes. Which until this story, was relatively high in the public’s opinion.

Only to fools. 60 Minutes has been lying to push their agendas (paid for or otherwise) since the hour was invented.

"Now back to r/CryptoCurrency, lying about the COVID vaccine, and accusing Democrats of being groomers and pedos."

Of course you're mad at 60 Minutes and their evil agenda alsoknown as "let ignorant, hateful Republicans speak".

Not in atleast 10 years if you are under 50.

The vast majority of people are well aware of that. What's surprising here is hearing that 60 Minutes will let someone buy their way onto the show. A lot of older people especially view 60 Minutes as a trustworthy source.

Yep, in both r/news ans r/worldnews. They will take anything down that they are paid for.
