Steven Brill On Johnson & Johnson America's Most Admired Law Breaker

What was cable television’s most watched drama in 2016?
The FX blockbuster — The People v. OJ Simpson.
Now being streamed by millions on Netflix.
America is consumed by high profile crime.
Which raises the question.
Why not high profile corporate crime?
That proposition will be put to the test next year.
Steven Brill – founder of the American Lawyer magazine and Court TV – has written a gripping account of a corporate crime – titled America’s Most Admired Lawbreaker.
That would be Johnson & Johnson.
When asked why America’s Most Admired Lawbreaker can’t be as riveting as the People v. OJ Simpson, Brill doesn’t miss a beat.
“It can be,” Brill told Corporate Crime Reporter in an interview last week.
“I did sell the movie rights to it,” he says matter of factly. “It is going to be made into a serial on one of the television outlets. That’s all I can tell you. Probably in six months to a year you will see it. It is harder to get eyeballs to it than OJ, but I think we are going to succeed.”
In America’s Most Admired Lawbreaker, Brill tells the story of the biggest and the most admired corporation in the world’s most prosperous industry – healthcare – a company known for “consumer products from Band-Aids to baby powder, Neutrogena to Rogaine, Listerine to Visine, Aveeno to Tylenol and Sudafed to Splenda.”
“But the real money — about 80 percent of its revenue and 91 percent of its profit,” Brill writes, “comes not from those consumer favorites, but from Johnson & Johnson’s high-margin medical devices: artificial hips and knees, heart stents, surgical tools and monitoring devices – and from still higher margin prescription drugs targeting Crohn’s disease (Remicade), cancer (Zytiga, Velcade), schizophrenia (Risperdal), diabetes (Invokana), psoriasis (Stelara), migraines (Topamax), heart disease (Xarelto) and attention deficit disorder (Concerta).”
Brill focuses Johnson & Johnson’s corporate crime of selling Risperdal off label.
This could become a broadcast history making event and is sure to be one you don't want to miss.
Because unlike the Hollywood action flicks with corporate bad guys, its not someone else they're predating upon.
It's you, and its real.
Ask your Doctor if Risperdal might be right for you, and you'll find out just how real that danger is in a drop dead heartbeat.
Thank You Mr Brill and Corporate Crime Reporter.
