Townhall embarrasses itself again over prescription drugs

Townhall.com is a very good site for finding conservative columnists and I read it regularly, but they have this embarrassing weakness for drug-company propaganda. I don't know if they get money themselves from drug companies (though I'm beginning to suspect they do), but they frequently post bad, repetitive articles desperately trying to frighten people about importing drugs from Canada. I'm sorry, but the only reason anyone would pretend to be worried about the safety of drugs imported from Canada is because they have a strong incentive to take that position. And the most likely form of this incentive is money from drug companies.
