Pharmaceuticals and Bioethicists

Slate published this article about how pharmaceuticals hire bioethicists to help push their products. I don't 100% oppose this, as long as there truly are "no strings attached" to the money. However, the article concludes with this quote:

So the next time you meet a bioethicist, pay close attention; he may look like a bioethicist, but when you peel back his mask, you just might see the adman smiling back.

Advertising is an enormously important part of the corporate machine. It's always interesting to see how it's used in nontraditional ways.
