Does the FDA drop the ball on drug warning labels?
Drug companies write their own drug labels and submit the results of their clinical studies to the FDA. It’s then up to the FDA to review it and ensure that the most critical information makes it on to the drug label. But sometimes facts about side effects and effectiveness are left out and as a result clinicians aren't always getting the prescribing information they need. Is it a result of incomplete or badly organized information submitted by the drug companies or is the FDA's review process to blame?
Dr. Steven Woloshin, associate professor of medicine & of community and family medicine at Dartmouth Medical School; Author of “Lost in Transmission-FDA Drug Information That Never Reaches Clinicians
He is working with the FDA to improve their review process

Following high-profile, politically active celebrities and powerful political figures, Poliwood offers a behind-the-scenes look at the influence Hollywood wields over today's political process and the thin line between politician and actor, news and entertainment, policy and tabloid.
