Welcome to the Technical Tuesday section of the Oregon FBI. Today: Use TV to build digital defense.
Yes, I said about your TV. Especially your smart TV. . . The one sitting in your living room now. Or, the one you plan to buy on the Black Friday Super Sale.
Smart TVs are called "smart TVs" because they can connect to the Internet. They enable you to use popular streaming services and applications. For some of us who are lazy, they also have microphones, they are actually too lazy to pick up the remote control. Just shout out to change the channel or turn up the volume, and you are good to go.
Many newer TVs also have built-in cameras. In some cases, the camera is used for facial recognition, so the TV can know who is watching and can suggest appropriate programming. There are also some devices on the market that allow you to video chat with 42-inch Glory grandma.
In addition to the risk that TV manufacturers and application developers may be listening and watching you, TV can also be a gateway for hackers to enter your home. A bad network actor may not have direct access to a locked computer, but your insecure TV may provide him or her with an easy way through the router at the back door.
Hackers can also control your unsafe TV. At the low end of the risk range, they can change the channel, play volume, and show inappropriate videos to your child. In the worst case, they can turn on the camera and microphone of the bedroom TV and harass you in a silent manner.
Television and technology are an important part of our lives and will not disappear. So, how do you protect your family?
*Understand exactly what functions the TV has and how to control them. Use your model number and the words "microphone", "camera" and "privacy" for basic Internet searches.
*Do not rely on the default security settings. If possible, please change the password-and know how to turn off the microphone, camera and collect personal information if possible. If you cannot turn them off, please consider whether you are willing to risk buying the model or using the service.
*If you can't turn off the camera but want to turn off the camera, you can put a simple black tape on the camera eyes, this is the choice to restore the basics.
*Check the manufacturer's ability to update the device with security patches. Can they do this? Have they done it in the past?
*Check the privacy policies of the TV manufacturer and the streaming service you use. Identify what data they collect, how to store that data, and how to process it.
As always, if you are harmed by online fraud, be sure to report it to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center at:
Or call your local FBI office.
While watching the impeachment hearings in the House of Representatives, I realized that I have spent two decades studying why people ignore, reject, or deny that science is politically similar.
, Called "anti-vaxxers",
, All people who reject science follow the common pattern of false reasoning, which allows them to reject what they don’t want to believe and accept what they like based on a misunderstanding of how science handles evidence.
As I have been watching the hearings, I noticed that President Donald Trump and his congressional supporters have now accepted many characteristics of this reasoning.
Science deniers use five common strategies.
In 1998, brothers Mark and Chris Hoofnagle (lawyer and physiologist) wrote an article
About scientific denialism. Subsequently, by
And cognitive scientists
. Everyone identified the following factors as typical behaviors of scientific denial:
When these elements appear in those who deny the earth or those who reject the earth
Insist on having one
Real evidence on their subject. When can they see
Talk about the abnormal weather in the world caused by the El Niño phenomenon in 1998. When are they obviously
Complaining that the evolution of natural selection is still unproven.
Trump and his defenders in Congress
. Even though Trump has firsthand knowledge of some facts in the dispute, but his supporters do not, everyone seems to fully accept the view that the actual political situation is not in the mainstream consensus of facts and evidence. The one depicted, but on the contrary, it is based on another reality.
These are five ways Trump and his allies have adopted the same tactics as science deniers:
What might be the similarities between Trump defenders and science deniers?
Perhaps like scientific denial, all fact denials are basically the same.
Support reflection to believe what you want to believe.
In shaping beliefs and drawing conclusions, sometimes even
, Reflecting what other people on the team want you to believe. Adherence to beliefs is not always based on evidence.
The danger is of course that even if new facts emerge,
. This is the direct opposite of good empirical reasoning.
The hallmark of science is that beliefs should be based on evidence, and people should be based on evidence.
. This means that people should be able to specify in advance what evidence (if any) is sufficient to make them change their minds.
But are Trump and his congressional supporters doing this?
Like scientific deniers, there seems to be insufficient evidence to change their guerrilla party’s belief that the call with Zelensky is correct and that Trump "
Even if facts prevail, Congressional Republicans seem to be like science deniers, willing to distort their beliefs, torture their own logic, and insist on the party's position, because that is their identity.
, "I don't care what people say on the phone... I made up my mind on the phone very well."
In science, this behavior means that you will eventually be read as a profession-you will not be fired, your tenure will not be revoked, but you will no longer be taken seriously.
Politically, it is not yet clear what the consequences might be.
From Steve Rhodes:
The only shortcoming of this analysis is that it assumes that those who are still using these tactics have a certain sincerity-for example, Trump and his cronies truly believe in conspiracies they would amplify when they fully understand s. They are not real. After all, Trump is fully aware of what he is doing-and so are the people around him. As for his supporters, whether they are in Congress or outside, a certain number of them don't care.
This week’s release may be very fragmented, that is, every other week!
But seriously, I hate it
Yada yada yada.
I also happened to return to Bucktown from Monday to Saturday and stayed at Benny's for a week. Long-term reader
. New readers are about to discover!
Fox & Friends previewed an interview with Rick Perry. He said Trump was "the chosen person" and "God sent to do great things."
Pete Hegseth: "God has used imperfect people forever," but Trump "everything is different from what any other mortal can understand."
Obviously, God who suffers from obvious attention deficit disorder is
, So who knows.
at the same time,
This happens when children inherit the kingdom.
Then the words of the Illinois Congressman:
After hearings in the past few weeks, the overwhelming conclusion I got was,
-In the present incarnation-is a fundamental threat to our democracy. line:
Republican Party: the enemy of the people.
U.S. intelligence officials have informed the senators and their aides in recent weeks that Russia has been conducting a multi-year campaign to designate Ukraine as the person responsible for Moscow’s own hacking of the 2016 election.

Lupe Fiasco was in Riv on Thursday night.
I discovered that my father used to be a supplement to a group of people, including two Chicago police officers who would pretend to be police officers on duty and conduct false raids, steal money from dealers and take drugs to enrich themselves.
They never do this.
The job loss forecast regarding the minimum wage increase has not yet materialized
This always kills me. The position of the stars billions of years ago tells you whether you can shop today.
At least this team, especially the quarterback, has a certain sense of self. The highlight of Sunday was that when reporters asked Mitch Trubiski to talk about the positives that happened to the Bears in the Brutal 19-14 defeat of the Giants, he said: "We scored more points than them. "
A timely facial expression can help you. I am usually willing to agree with an athlete who refuses to speak nonsense. And as for Trubisky: General manager Ryan Pace may be worse than all of his predecessors in evaluating quarterbacks, and it's not his fault.
In the past 79 years, none of these people have hit quarterbacks (except for Jim Finks who brought in Jim McMahon-McMahon’s career was shortened by injuries , But it won’t help him if he doesn’t care about himself at all). In fact, it's been eighty years since Sid Luckman started his signaling business at Monsters in Midway. During his 12 years at the helm, his team has won four championships. Since 1963, McMahon is of course the only champion of the Bears.
There is also the fact that Trubiski is all the Bears have for the rest of the season. That is very clear. Bring him some games next year, and then we will reassess. Of course, the problem is that Pace will almost certainly not be fired at the end of this tournament, which means that the person who gave Mike Glennon $18 million will be responsible for participating in the game.
At this point, my performance against quarterbacks is pretty good, but the coach has begun to attract me. I know that Matt Nagy can't just give up his uniqueness in quarterback, and he can also avoid doing things that praise Trubisky for his outstanding performance in the past three weeks. That's it, you know the coach, he is not doing well. Both his average number of passes per game and the number of attempted passes remain in the basement of the league. Come on, coach!
What was the special show of football yesterday. Both of these parts start with a kick-off that goes beyond the boundaries. It really is like this and things got worse since then. Nagy eventually broke into the red zone at quarterback, and Trubisky took part in the game, giving the Bears a two touchdown lead in the third quarter.
The NFL doesn't want you to see Mitch Trubisky's touchdown.
But then there was a comedic error, as the Bears tried to get the best one or two points.
Trubiski completed a two-point conversion pass from Tyler Gabriel in the end zone, but the game was invalidated due to Alan Robinson's interference with the offensive pass. By the way, this also happened in last year's game. Nagy continued to believe that if one of his receivers rushed into middle school and stood in front of such a defensive defense, it would be okay. Just like last year, he made a big noise again yesterday.
Dean Blandino, Dean of the Fox Sports Rules Department, not only said that the defender judge disagreed with him, but also pointed out that the recipient was asked to at least make it look like he was trying to execute a route.
The killer here was that Robinson's performance in the game didn't matter-Gabriel was open and Trubisky strode him almost immediately. what
The penalty was evaluated, and then the Bears managed to punish too many people on the court again. That resulted in a 48-yard extra kick, and of course, the ball went wide to the left.
¿ Cuantosmás Eddy Pineiro? ¿ Cuantosmás? ?
There were also two brutal interceptions on the offensive end, and the defender was allowed an odd 97 yard kick, and the fourth and 18 conversion made it possible to block shots, and the Giants had a chance to be late.
In other words, this article about this game and 5-6 bears is more than enough. See you in Turkey.
From Tom Chambers:
I don't watch the Bears very much, but I went to watch it yesterday because I bet. I think the bears will win, and they will not be able to make up for the excessively high spreads.
There is a scene late in the first half that tells everything you want to know about the bears, especially their "coach."
The Giants hit the guy to the left on the left, and the Bears on the right. The Bears guys have about 65% of the tackles, but it should have been solved. Four Four Four Four Four Bears stood there and watched, like people on the street and a saint watching closely on the manhole. Don't worry, he has solved it. Therefore, the guy broke the tackle and hugged the bear for two yards. None of the many bears in the vicinity were close to this guy, except for one, but the giant crossed the line anyway. Fundamentally speaking, this team is worse than their record. They gave up the play! Or how did that teach them? This team has already withdrawn.
In addition, the fact that they did not kick their feet is an example of Pete-style dishes, illustrating the inability of the front desk. They conducted a search for the Manhattan Project, but there was still no one.
Virginia should break into the locker room early and instruct them to pack their luggage, because they will pack their luggage before the new year.

My friend Alan is a transplanted Chicago native who lives in the Chicago Bay Area. Last week when news broke that Yasmani Grandal had signed the most profitable contract in the history of the White Sox, he didn’t leave a deep impression. impression.
Under the theme of "Grandal? Really? .241 A lifetime batsman?"? He wrote: "We already have an excellent catcher. We need a fielder and pitcher who can play. Let us hope that the purse string will remain open for a while."
beg to be excused. If there is a fan of White Sox in Mount Rushmore in Northern California, my friend will be hewn into stone. He watched all Sox broadcasts. Thinking about it again, I don't believe he will miss any opportunity.
Alluding to his final point, it is clear that there is more cash in the Socks vault, and if there are signs that Jose Abreu will be extended for three years at a price of $5 million, there are signs.
I said to Allen: "We have a receiver (James McCann). He shot 0.226 in the second half, but he still performed the best. He will continue to play next season.
"Compared with [Grandal]'s best performer. Switch batter. 27 HR. Walked 109 times. (Yolmer leads Sox with 44.) Ranked first or second in the pitch frame. Grandal last season. 380 OBP and .348 (Moncada led Sox in .367 last season) played 153 games in the national league, so he can DH.
"This is a very good move."
Due to the art of pitch framing, which is a popular statistic in recent years, joining Grandal should please young pitchers Lucas Giolito, Reynaldo Lopez, Dylan Cease and Michael Kopech.
, "The frame statistics are a measure of the number of runs saved by the catcher based on how many extra hits the catcher can get."
Because of the weird way referees play and strike today, you might think that Betty White can pull a tone or two into the strike zone to fool the guy staring on her shoulder.
Grandal has obviously perfected this technique.
Ranked second with a score of 19.4, second only to the clergyman Austin Hedges' 26.
Meanwhile, McCain ranked 104th with minus 8 points, and Wellington Castillo ranked 112th with minus 10.5 points. For the 23rd-ranked pitcher in the walking rankings released last season, let Grandal play his magic figure to help the free pass department. In addition, Yasmani may share some tips and secrets with McCann. At the very least, the combination of Grandal and McCann is a major improvement over the McCann-Castillo duo we have recently witnessed.
When it comes to the other side of the equation, Grandal has strong abilities and basic abilities. No matter which side of the plate he swings from, he also uses the entire field. His spray picture looks like a severe case of chickenpox.
Observers like my friend Alan staying on Grandal's .241 hit rate average, which is just another sign of how much the game has changed over the decades. A few years ago, just like Granda last season, a receiver who made 139 hits may be in a bubble between the major leagues and Triple-A.
I confess to Alan that .241 sounds like "Joe Ginsberg", referring to the second string catcher of our youth, who has successfully persisted in major leagues for 13 years. , Rarely persists like ordinary catchers. Before I checked Ginsberg's record, I never knew that .241 happened to be his lifetime average!
A member of a group of reserve catchers in the 1950s. They have been together in the major leagues for at least 10 years. They occasionally participate in a game, but spend most of their time warming up the rescue pitchers in the bullpen. A good club has regular receivers and can easily get acquainted with the team. The greatest are Yogi Berra of the Yankees and Roy Campanella of the Dodgers. Other people who are not tall include Jim Hegan (Cleveland), Del Crandall (Milwaukee), Sami White (Boston), Gus Triandos (Baltimore), Bill Freehan (Detroit) and Wes Westlum (New York Giants). These guys are reliable defensive receivers, and any contribution they make on the offensive end is nothing but gravy. Unexpectedly, they will increase a lot.
However, even though doubles volleyball is scheduled on most Sundays, they are still required to participate in matches almost every day, which requires a reserve receiver, Joe Ginsbergs in the world. Ginsberg played for seven different teams in parts of the 1960 and 1961 seasons, including the White Sox. In addition to his lifetime average of .241 points, in 1,985 plate appearances, he only drew 135 times (less than 7%) and drew 226 moves. In his career, he hit 20 home runs and threw nearly 40% of the basic hits.
Arguably, the most famous reserve receiver is Berra’s research
. He played 10 seasons, except for one in "The Bronx." In his entire career, Silvera has only participated in 541 matches. However, his lifetime batting average is a respectable .282, with a baseline value of .356.
Like Ginsberg, Silda is rarely fanatical; she walks only 32 times53. He set his career singles championship on July 4, 1951, when Silvera was a double-headed, double-ended Yankee catcher. We can only speculate that Bella, who participated in 141 games that season, wanted to participate too much.
Silvera's highest salary is $19,000, but as an American in the 1950s, Charlie died in September at the age of 94 and still cashed seven World Series checks. In 1949, he participated in only one series, and achieved nothing in two bat games. In the other six series, Charlie had a lovely perch in the bullpen.
Throughout the 1950s. Seven-time All-Star Sherman Lollar (Sherman Lollar) served as the successor to the White Sox.
He has a lot of back-ups, such as Les Moss, Carl Sawatski, Red Wilson and Earl Battey, who have always He is a regular catcher in Washington/Minnesota.
In the year of winning the pennant in 1959, Lollar led the team with today's pedestrian numbers: 22 home runs and 84 RBIs. Defensively, he is very strong. In 1954, he was eliminated with 68% of the potential base steals, leading the league. After more than 18 seasons (12 seasons for the White Sox), Sherm cut .264/.357/.759 respectively. If he is a free agent today, his contract may look similar to Grandal's contract.
Of course, in today's game, the average number of shots is far from statistics. Substitute victory (WAR) is a commonly used indicator to measure player ability. Grandal scored 5.2 last season, ranking second among all receivers. By comparison, Lollar's WAR in 1959 was 3.7, while McCann's closing price last season was 2.3.
The weighted baseline average (wOBA) is advertised as a more realistic indicator of effectiveness than the batting average, and Grandal ranked highest among catchers in 2019, at .361, and McCann at a respectable .333.
However, for those who are still in awe of the .300 batsman, this is still a challenge, thinking that those who reach .250 are mediocre. And .241? It can be said that Yasmani Grandal is not Yogi Berra. But he certainly wasn't Joe Ginsberg either.
Football fanatics now have an excuse to enjoy a meal in front of TV during the Thanksgiving game instead of attending a formal sit-down family dinner.
For decades, these meals have been promoted as a universal solution to complex problems such as childhood obesity, family breakdown and even depression.
But in a new study, researchers at Monash University overturned previous views and found that enjoying dinner time in front of the TV or car between events can actually be
, Challenges the outdated and potentially harmful expectations of the role of sitting down for family meals. Research has found that more and more families are balancing their busy lifestyles while eating on the kitchen bench or in front of the TV.
Monash Professor of Sociology said that the supposed benefits and results of eating in a structured family diet lack a strong scientific basis.
She said: "It is unrealistic to strengthen the nostalgia of family life." "We don't want parents to feel like a moral failure, nor do they want parents to eat apart and harm their children's health; this is not the case.
"Instead of advocating the diet of the past, it is better to say that supporting a flexible and healthy diet at the table may be a more fruitful strategy to promote public health, and can create more peaceful and practical meal times."
As part of the research, elementary school students from 50 different families in Victoria, Australia kept a visual diary of family food consumption, providing a unique window on how busy lifestyles affect family meal times and establishing diversified eating habits.
The families interviewed by the researchers found that long hours of work, long commutes, schedule conflicts, children's sports, and parental commitments all affected the dinner. Some children took the car to eat between activities.
Family meals are more likely to be reserved for special occasions, such as birthdays, while regular meal times are less formal and more practical.
This article uses data collected as part of a broader study that focuses on school health information and children’s role as health advocates in the school and family environment.
In 2004, Purdue Pharma faced a huge sales threat from the opioid analgesic OxyContin, which had annual sales of nearly 2 billion U.S. dollars. With the increase in drug abuse, prosecutors filed criminal proceedings against some doctors for prescribing a large number of OxyContin.
That October, an article crossed
"Health" section under heading
Its author, psychiatrist Sally Satel (Sally Satel) argues that law enforcement is over-enthusiastic and that some patients need large doses of opioids to relieve pain. She described a colleague, who did not want to be named, who had performed painful services in a university medical center and had a patient who could only get up by taking "astonishing" levels of OxyContin's active ingredient, oxycodone. She also cited a study published in a medical journal that showed that OxyContin is rarely the only drug found in autopsy of deaths related to oxycodone.
Suttle wrote: "When you scratch the surface of someone who is addicted to painkillers, you will usually find an experienced drug addict who used to take medicine, alcohol, heroin or cocaine in the past." "Contrary to the description of the media. The typical OxyContin drug addicts do not start with painful patients, they unknowingly fall into the habit of taking drugs."
Satel was identified as a "resident scholar of the American Enterprise Institute and a member of the unpaid advisory board of the Administration of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services."
However, it did not tell the readers about her participation and the participation of Purdue University and the participation of the American Enterprise Institute.
In the contact obtained by e-mail, and in the file obtained
*From 2003 to this year, Purdue University donated US$50,000 to the Institute (commonly known as AEI) each year, plus donations for special events, totaling more than US$800,000.
*According to an unpublished draft of the story, an unnamed doctor in the Satel article is an employee of Purdue University.
* The research cited by Satel was funded by Purdue and written by Purdue employees and consultants.
*And, a month before the article was published, Suttle sent a draft to Burt Rosen, a Washington lobbyist and vice chairman of federal policy and legislative affairs at Purdue University, asking him whether he “seems not to be balance".
On the day of the release, Jason Bertsch, AEI's vice president of development, reminded Rosen of "Sally's outstanding work."
"It's great," Rosen replied.
Purdue University’s secret relationship with Satel and AEI illustrates how the company and its public relations consultants are actively opposed to criticizing its precious painkillers for helping to cause the opioid epidemic.
Related to overdose of prescription opioids. For nearly two decades, it has continued until
Satel refused to restrict the prescription of opioids, banned the publication of more than a dozen articles and radio and TV shows, but did not disclose any links with Purdue University.
During the same period, Purdue University was represented by Dezenhall Resources, a public relations firm specializing in defending troubled companies. The bankruptcy filing shows that Purdue University paid Dezenhall this summer but still owes it.
These documents and e-mails stated that the think tank funded by Purdue University was used by the media for expert commentary, facilitated the publication of sympathy articles in major media that did not disclose its role, and prevented or challenged negative reports.
Its efforts to influence the public’s understanding of the opioid crisis have provided people with an internal understanding of how companies can directly criticize so-called misconduct.
Purdue University’s strategy is reminiscent of the oil and gas industry, which is accused of promoting misleading science that understates the effects of climate change, and big tobacco, which tries to destroy evidence that nicotine is addictive and that second-hand smoke is harmful.
Media rotation is just one of Purdue University’s strategies to eliminate restrictions on opioid prescriptions. it

The company pays leading doctors in the field of pain to ensure the safety of OxyContin to patients.
It also funded groups such as
, Which shows that he is an advocate for pain patients. Several groups
And fight to curb the use of opioids by patients with chronic pain.
Purdue University’s campaign may help to stop stricter controls on opioid prescriptions, especially after a large number of reports of OxyContin abuse and addiction first appeared in 2001.
It may also successfully postpone final calculations on Purdue University and the Sackler family of billionaires who own the company.
Although Purdue admitted in 2007 that the federal government had underestimated the risk of addiction and agreed to pay a fine and fine of $600 million, the role of Sacklers in the opioid epidemic is what follows It has not been widely reported in the past ten years.
Due to strong opposition to the family, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September.
Caleb Alexander, co-director of the Center for Drug Safety and Effectiveness at Johns Hopkins University, said: "Efforts to reverse the epidemic have to resist the widespread belief that opioids are a safety issue, and opioids are abused. The talent is the problem." Bloomberg School of Public Health served as a paid expert witness in the lawsuit, claiming that Purdue University’s OxyContin marketing misled doctors and the public.
"These are very important narratives, and they have become lenses for people to view and understand the epidemic. They have proven to be effective means to prevent interventions to reduce the continued oversupply of opioids."
Satel, emailed to
Said that she came to the conclusion independently.
She wrote: "I do not accept payment for my work (articles, speeches, etc.) by the industry." "If someone has an interesting topic to tell me, I am willing to meet with anyone. If I decide to be interested in me, then I will conduct my own research."
As for Purdue University’s funding of AEI, Sattel said in an interview that she “did not know” that the company was paying her employer, and she would not disclose information about institutional funders. She said: "I never want to know." She said that she did not reveal that the study she mentioned was also funded by Purdue University because "I quoted the title of a peer-reviewed paper published in a journal."
Many media prohibit or discourage sharing drafts with story topics or other interested parties before publication. Sattle said she did not remember sharing this vote with Rosen, which was not her usual practice. She said: "This is very atypical." However, according to the email she sent, Satel shared a draft of another story with Purdue University officials in 2016. Suttle said that in that case, she was checking the facts.
Satel said she couldn't remember why there was no doctor with high-dose painkillers mentioned in the doctor's name.
story. The ballot she sent to Purdue University identified him as Sidney Schnoll, then the company's executive medical director, defending OxyContin in public meetings and media reports. Schnoll described Satel as an old friend in an interview and said that her description of the patient was accurate. He said that he left Purdue University in 2005 and now works for a consulting company with Purdue University as its client.
Purdue University said in a statement that it has been a member of multiple think tanks in Washington over the years. It said: "These on-demand membership systems help the company better understand the key issues that affect its business in a complex policy and regulatory environment." "For many years, policy experts from various think tanks have worked with Purdue Contact, they seek more background information on industry issues at work. Our participation is always appropriate and aims to provide a view that the company believes is usually science-based to be ignored in larger policy dialogues.” The The company declined to discuss specific issues related to internal file and email reviews.
, Danielle Rhoades Ha said in an email that the company does not know how to deal with the details of the Satel story because the editor who worked on the story no longer works there. She pointed out
Mark the article as "article" and quote Satel's connection with AEI. She said that at present,
Editors “usually advise reporters not to share the complete draft of the story with the source during the fact-checking process,” but there are no formal rules.
Purdue University launched OxyContin in 1996 and soon became one of the most widely prescribed opioid analgesics. By 2001, it had not only generated considerable profits, but also increased concerns about drug overdose and addiction. August of that year
Criticize media reports that OxyContin has been abused. The work-titled "Hero Wigs?"-mocks the "new victim", the "sneak heroin" addict. The article argues that the real victims are pain patients, who may not be able to obtain "prescription drugs."
At 5:17 a.m. on the day the article was published, Eric Dezenhall, the founder of Dezenhall Resources, a crisis management company in Washington, D.C., sent an email to executives at Purdue University.
The Oklahoma Attorney General filed a lawsuit in a lawsuit against opioid manufacturers.
He wrote: "Check out today's New York Post on OxyContin." "The counter-story begins."
That summer, Purdue University hired Dezenhall Resources. Dezenhall’s harsh words are consistent with the "victim" strategy advocated by Richard Sackler, then President of Purdue University.
Sackler wrote in an email in 2001: "We must do everything possible to abuse abusers."
Oppose the company. "They are the culprit and the problem. They are Lure's criminals."
Boycotted a mother in New Jersey who urged federal regulators to investigate the marketing of OxyContin. Her daughter died of back pain while taking the medicine. A Purdue University spokesperson said: "We think she abused drugs." Purdue University later apologized for the matter.
However, pain patients who use OxyContin legal prescription drugs and similar pain relievers can and do become addicted to the drug. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
"Anyone taking prescription opioids can become addicted," and "up to a quarter of patients receiving long-term opioid treatment in primary medical institutions struggle with opioid addiction."
The reported research shows that the incidence of "well-diagnosed addiction" in pain patients is less than 8% on average, while abuse, abuse and addiction-related abnormal behaviors account for 15% to 26% of pain patients.
Although Dezenhall Resources did not work at Purdue until recently, it rarely establishes contact with the company publicly. According to the filing documents of the bankruptcy court, Purdue University paid Dezenhall US$309,272 in July and August this year and owed it US$186,575. The total amount that has not been paid to Dezenhall since 2001 has not been disclosed in the records reviewed by the following agencies
According to data from 2006, Dezenhall Resources also defended Exxon Mobil from criticism from environmental groups and former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling's opposition to fraud allegations. behavior,
Eric Dezenhall’s profile, calling him "
. "(The technique was later convicted.)
The magazine reported that Dezenhall arranged an Exxon pro-demonstration on Capitol Hill to divert attention from nearby environmental protests. The company also discussed plans to pay newspaper editors. , To question the motives of Enron's whistleblower.
Dezenhall Resources stated on its website: "We believe that success can only be achieved by directly preventing attackers."
Reviewed emails sent to Purdue University officials, in which Dezenhall and his employees were praised for discouraging national TV news programs from pursuing stories about OxyContin; helped cancel documentary projects about the abuse of OxyContin on major cable networks; forced multiple The outlets issued corrections related to the coverage of OxyContin; and reported sympathetic pain patients on TV news programs and newspaper columns.
"For the past few years, Dezenhall has been helping arrange advocacy stories for pain patients," Dezenhall Executive Vice President
Written in an email in 2006.
Eric Dezenhall told
He does not confirm or reject the identity of the customer. When refusing to answer questions about Purdue or refusing to comment
Regarding his article, he said that his company's behavior was appropriate and he sought fair and truthful reports.
He wrote: “We regularly work with experts and journalists, including Pro Publica, to ensure the accuracy of the various story lines that report and persuade them about facts and research.” “In the end, these journalists and experts Will decide how to use the information provided."
After being hired by Purdue University, Dezenhall Resources' first step was to plant Satel. In July 2001, Hershow reported to Purdue University officials that she had lunch with Eric Dezenhall and Satel and that the doctor was "eager to get started." Hershow said that Sattle had read an "unpacked material" and was "interested in expressing opinions on the medical needs of patients who sacrificed to protect drug users."
Sattle said that meetings with Denzer Hole are not unusual, and "I often talk to people with interesting stories."
Satel grew up in Queens and has Ivy League blood. Before going to Brown University School of Medicine, she entered Cornell University as an undergraduate. She worked as a professor of psychiatry at Yale University for many years before moving to Washington. For more than ten years since 1997, she has been a psychologist in the city's methadone clinic.
She has become an influential spokesperson for opioids, addiction and pain treatment. Her work was published in
And other places.
She often appears on panels, TV shows and newspapers as an expert on opioid crisis and painkiller guidelines.
She recently said: "We have entered a new era of phobias."
Satel has been a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute since 2000. Notable figures who have worked at AEI include the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and former Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton. Current researcher
After serving as a commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the agency returned to AEI this year, and the committee is responsible for approving and overseeing prescription drugs such as OxyContin.
Purdue University says it pays $50,000 to AEI each year as part of the institute’s corporate plan. The Institute’s website states that the program provides companies with “an opportunity to conduct administrative briefings and knowledge sharing with leading scholars in the most important policy areas.”
Companies can choose between three levels of donation: Purdue University’s annual donation is $50,000, which is in the middle level, the "execution circle."
A company spokesperson said that in addition to the annual payment, Purdue University also paid a total of US$24,000 to participate in two special events organized by the institute.
Internal e-mails show that the main contact between Purdue University and AEI is Rosen, an internal lobbyist for a pharmaceutical company based in Washington. Rosen described the leaders of the think tank as "very good friends" in an email, noting that
He was promoted to this position after serving as a scholar at AEI.
Rosen also organized a group of painkiller manufacturers and industry-funded organizations to form an organization called the "Pain Care Forum". According to records generated by the lawsuit against Purdue University, it met to share information about the government’s efforts to limit opioid prescriptions.
A spokesperson for AEI stated that the institute has not discussed donors publicly.
, And the researchers came to their own conclusions.
She said, "Satel will not realize that the AEI funders are justified."
Dezenhall's courtship of Satel quickly paid off. One month after lunch with Sazen's Dezenhall and Hershow
She wrote: "Some measures must be taken to keep OxyContin from erroneous control, but a true public health tragedy will deprive patients who need it from the right to survive in a relatively comfortable daily life."
In February 2002,
Answer the following question at its headquarters: "Who is responsible for the abuse of OxyContin?"
Panelists include Satel, Purdue University executives and Purdue University lawyers.
Reporting activities, Reuters Health
The group "majority agreed that Purdue Pharmaceuticals should not be regarded as the culprit for the abuse of its long-acting painkiller OxyContin."
According to the company's internal records, two months later, Purdue University approved a $2,000 grant for Satel to discuss addiction issues with staff at a hospital in New Orleans. Suttle said she "has absolutely no memory of speaking at a hospital in New Orleans."
The doctor who organized the planned event said that he did not remember whether the event took place, and the hospital no longer had records of medical staff conversations during that period.
In 2003, the Dezenhall staff recommended Satel as the producer’s guest
On NPR. Company and Purdue University executives, including vice presidents
, Helped prepare the appearance of Satel.
Haddox relayed what he called "Sally's Interesting Information" that Lyme's mother suffered from chronic headaches. "Thank you for helping us speed up the performance," Hershow replied.
A spokesperson for Washington’s NPR radio station WAMU, which produces the Rehm show, said that there is no policy to ask guests about the funding of their organization or whether they have financial links to the show’s theme.
The spokesperson wrote: "For most market segments, producers will try to show their views as much as possible so that the audience can better make informed judgments on the topic at hand."
Haddox could not be reached for comment.
In the same year, when conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh revealed that he was addicted to prescription painkillers, Purdue rejected CNN's request and asked company representatives to broadcast the news. On the contrary, Purdue recommended Satel, who
OxyContin is a "very effective and practically safe drug, if taken as prescribed".
Dezen Hall's Hershow told Purdue University executives in an email that she was "very happy that Sally went on."
Hershow, a former investigative producer of ABC News, declined to comment for this article.
In September 2004,
The article under the heading Satel "OxyContin does not cause addiction. Its abusers are already addicted."
"I'm very happy this morning!" Howard Udell, then general counsel of Purdue University, emailed other company executives and Eric Dezenhall. The subject is "RE: Forbes Article".
Three years later,
Criminal proceedings were filed in federal court for misleading patients and doctors regarding the addictive nature of OxyContin.
As part of the 2007 settlement agreement, Purdue University admitted that it was "intent to defraud or mislead" because it advocated that OxyContin is less addictive and less abusive than other painkillers.
Sattle used the title "Oxy Morons" to defend the company. She writes: "The real public health damage here comes from the intense campaign by enthusiastic prosecutors and public interest advocates to demonize the drug itself."
After Purdue and Dezenhall launched a "counter-story" campaign, media coverage of OxyContin's addiction and abuse fell for a few years. In 2001, 1,204 stories were published in the media archived on the Nexis database, including the words "OxyContin", "abuse" and "Purdue". This number plummeted to 361 in 2002 and 150 in 2006.
Purdue's counterattack against the ambitious series of investigations on the abuse of OxyContin may have contributed to this decline. October 2003 series
"It was discovered that Purdue University's aggressive marketing methods and weak supervision have contributed to "a wave of death and destruction."
However, the series was damaged by several errors, which were detailed in the front page correction nearly four months later. reporter
, And reassigned two editors of the series.
While acknowledging the error, the newspaper did not withdraw the series of reports, and its comments insisted on the conclusion that oxycodone was involved in a large number of drug overdose in Florida.
Dezenhall Resources received praise in an email for forcing the newspaper to publish a correction.
"Dezenhall's efforts resulted in the wrong 5 days, and the 19-part homepage was completely withdrawn.
"Series", Hershow wrote in an email in 2006 that summarized Dezenhall's work for Purdue University with the subject of "Success in Dealing with Negative News."
Purdue University officials and the company’s public relations agency proposed a 13-point plan to get the media to report on these errors. These include asking doctors to discuss how the series "scares and misleads (sic) the people of Florida", as well as getting painful patients to publish opinions on the subject in newspapers.
An official from Purdue University wrote to other company executives and Dezenhall’s Hershow series of articles, a conclusion that made the United States aware of "sensational reports about the abuse of OxyContin in the past four years. The past ten years!"
In the six years since the Purdue Challenge
It increased by 84.2% in Florida. The largest increase was 264.6% due to deaths involving oxycodone. As unscrupulous pain clinics are attracted to drug seekers in the state, the state has become a hotbed for improper use of opioid prescriptions. Many people’s route from the Appalachian town to the Florida clinic is nicknamed
14 years after 2017
It said "too early" and said "foretells the current opioid epidemic."
Purdue University cannot stop restrictions on opioid prescriptions forever. Since 2011, more and more states, insurance companies and federal health agencies have adopted policies that have led to a decrease in prescriptions year by year. Advocates of pain treatment complain that this shift has gone too far, and the CDC
Doctors prevent sudden discontinuation of opioids.
Nevertheless, the United States is still far away
Under increasing pressure, Purdue has hired other public relations firms known for actively helping companies in crisis. Last year's merged Burson-Marsteller public relations company (Burson-Marsteller) signed an agreement in 2011 to provide Purdue University with "strategic consultants."
After the deadly Bhopal bombing in India, Boya Public Relations represented Johnson & Johnson in response to Tylenol poisoning and Union Carbide.
According to the document, it helps Purdue University identify and respond to "potential threats" such as congressional investigators and the organization.
The proposed 2013 work plan between the two companies requires Burson to perform up to $2.7 million for Purdue. BCW did not respond to a request for comment.
Purdue University also hired the services of Purple Strategies, a Washington area company.
After the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Court documents show that Purdue University paid Purple Strategies US$621,653 and owed it US$207,625 within 90 days of filing for bankruptcy on September 15. Purple Strategies did not respond to a request for comment.
Purdue also added
Stabilized. Loeser is the head of a media strategy company of the same name. He was the press secretary of Michael Bloomberg when he was the mayor of New York City. He is now the spokesperson for Bloomberg's possible presidential campaign. .
Soon after Loeser started representing Purdue, Satel wrote in an article in 2018
With the title "
"Is about the "false narrative" that the epidemic of opioids is "driven by patients who are addicted to opioids prescribed by doctors." "
Loeser told Purdue University executives in an email, "We will work with AEI to "promote" this goal and make it happen as planned: their deliberate consideration of other writing."
He added that his team is working hard to target Satel’s stories, “searching people in social media sources for opioid problems, maybe even people reading specific stories online.”
Loeser said in an interview that he ultimately did not collaborate with AEI to promote the story. He said Purdue University is no longer a client.

Jim "Coach" Coffman and I plan to record "Beachwood Radio Sports Time" this Saturday because I will be doing this recording on Friday morning. . .
"It is said that he is the head of the "AHK Street Gang" in the Chicago area, which traffics various drugs, including heroin and cocaine, throughout the urban area," the U.S. Department of Justice said.
"However, on Thursday, Jason Brown entered the federal court not because of drug charges but because he was trying to provide material support to ISIS."
I have no particular reason to doubt this, but history tells us to be wary of the excessive lethality of DOJ in such cases.
"In particular, the Ministry of Justice alleged that on three different occasions this year,'Brown provided $500 to a secret source with the purpose of linking the $500 to Brown personally. Brown believes that this is an active person in Syria. Fighting ISIS soldiers." The man is secretly cooperating with law enforcement agencies,
Therefore, Brown is the alleged leader of a Chicago street gang that traffics all kinds of drugs including heroin and cocaine, but he still only raised $500 for his favorite cause? That's an unpaid activation bill in Chicago. Not exactly what the world rules.
The criminal charges allege that Brown was in a "radical prison" during his sentence in 2016.
I can believe it.
"Three days after the Justice Department announced that Brown was arrested, federal authorities arrested a 20-year-old student at DePaul University, Thomas Osadzinski, on the same charge, in an attempt to provide material support to ISIS.
"The criminal complaint in the Osadzinski case stated that he designed a procedure to make ISIS propaganda easier for users to access and spread on social media platforms."
Well, it sounds a bit loose.
"According to the complaint, Osadzinski designed a process using computer scripts
, Bypassing the preventive code that regularly deletes ISIS content due to the violent nature of the material,"
"However, the complaint did not point to the social media platform, only that it was a mobile and desktop messaging application."
"In February, an information technology professional who met Osadzinski through computer science studies called the student under the guise of discussing computer science programs. The source became friends with Osadzinski and falsely told him that he was also a supporter of ISIS. Faced with Osadzinski personally five times.
"The two are approaching. Osakinski told the source that he intends to meet with his potential spouse in Indonesia. He detailed his investigation of the FBI agent, which he suspects is his offspring, which shows that he knows the agent. Details of the father. Osaginski also showed a screenshot of the source of the message he had sent t
