    Elizabeth Holmes' father was a journalist; he told his child that the job of a journalist is "to speak the truth".
    Yet over 40-years on, his dotter, during a nationally-televised interview, twisted that to make it seem that an investigative journalist was smearing her "breakthrough technology".

    She promised to extract phenomenal amounts of data from a finger-stick sample of blood, rather than multiple vials of the stuff.
    She exploited a loophole in the regulation & oversight of tests & testing equipment, made millions in the process, & put many patients at risk as collateral damage.
    Her then-BF was her partner - & then they got caught.

    I certainly hope this forces the FDA to pass new legislation to prevent more "proprietary technology" from evading any scrutiny or cross-checking.
