Jeffrey Lieberman is one of the nation’s leading proponents of outpatient commitment and forced “treatment” laws. He was a major booster of the draconian Murphy bill. In testimony before Congress and in interviews, speeches and presentations to psychiatrists and to the public, Lieberman has impugned critics of psychiatry, often connecting them with the Church of Scientology. I want to be informed about how powerful institutions like the APA and bullies like Lieberman (recipients of vast sums from Pharma) throw their weight around and successfully wield their influence with the New York Times and other media. (Given that drug ads are a top revenue driver for the media, maybe we shouldn’t be surprised about the ease with which Lieberman gets it to do his bidding.) Thank you for the article.
