NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine -

Medical device company mudslinging over sales reps' conduct, hiring

Posted By


Nerves seem to have been rubbed a bit raw at a couple of medical device companies, according to an interesting story by Christopher Snowbeck of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

I’ll only tell you that the story touches on:


• cow pies
(Photo by Jeff Vanuga, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, found on Wikipedia. Ed. note: This photo is provided for the education of users who have never been on a farm. It is not necessarily the “mud” referred to in the headline’s reference to “mudslinging.” This may be the only time I’ll ever have the chance to discuss cowpies on this blog, so this is a rare teaching moment.)

• divorce

• Senator Chuck Grassley

• disciplining sales reps for repeatedly breaching code of conduct for interactions with health care professionals.

You’ll have to read Snowbeck’s piece to get the details.
