I'm no fan of the supplement industry, but Bill Hammond is right on point.
As I wrote for the New York Observer in February,
It is clear that Mr. Schneiderman believes that the FDA doesn't have enough authority to crack down on the shady supplement industry. But that doesn't give him license to use tactics reminiscent of 1970's era tobacco industry chicanery to make claims that just aren't true.
Mr. Schneiderman, New York's prosecutor-in-chief, claims on his perpetual campaign web page that he has a record of standing up to financial institutions "that think they can play by their own rules." Yet Mr. Schneiderman's market-moving bogus attack on GNC and other retailers was founded entirely on his own rules-a bizarre application of a secret DNA test. Who's going to hold him accountable?
