Big Media: Not an Ally in the Campaign for Vitamin Freedom

"Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have." (Richard Salent, former president, CBS News).



From time to time, people write and ask us (Dr. Rath Health Foundation) why the media doesn’t give more publicity to the issues that we cover on our website. If all of the things on the Foundation’s website are true, they reason, then wouldn’t the media be reporting on them as well?

To illustrate why such thinking is naïve, and in response to the many requests we have received to speak out about the TV item on Codex that was broadcast in May 2008 on the Tros TV channel in the Netherlands, the following article by Paul Anthony Taylor, the Foundation’s External Relations Director, explains why Big Media cannot be seen as an ally in the campaign for vitamin freedom.

Journalists under pressure to oppose vitamin freedom

Our Foundation has known for some time now that journalists are sometimes put under pressure to back anti-vitamin stories. In April 2008, for example, the British journalist and writer Rachel Johnson wrote an article entitled ‘Not so vital vitamins’ for the UK Sunday Times in which she cited a review on vitamins by Danish scientists, stated that vitamins are a waste of money and claimed that taking them may shorten life expectancy.Subsequently however, upon being presented with an article – citing research published in the International Journal of Cancer – showing that a researcher who claimed vitamins can speed up the development of cancer has essentially admitted she got it wrong, Johnson confessed that she “knew there was something fishy” about the Danish scientists’ review but claimed she “was under pressure to back it” even though she “thought it was simply impossible to pin any of the outcomes on taking vitamins.”

But Johnson is by no means alone in having come up against interference with her journalistic independence


Gammelt nytt for de fleste her at alle større medier underslår og motarbeider objektiv nyhetsformidling, antar jeg? Men det var interessant med førstehåndserfaring fra en ærlig journalist

Rachel Johnson admitted she
had been "under pressure" to back an anti-vitamin story
even though she "thought it was simply impossible to pin
any of the outcomes on taking vitamins"
