Mainstream media avoiding any mention of link between psychiatric drugs and violent shootings

(NaturalNews) Whether it's because most members of the mainstream media are simply oblivious to the effects of psychotropic drugs, whether it's a biased political agenda, laziness or a combination of all of those elements, you will be hard-pressed to find many journalists who dare to link the dangers of these medications to the growing number of horrific mass murders that have occurred with alarming frequency in recent years.

The most recent of these involved 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who killed his mother before traveling to the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., earlier this month to murder 20 Kindergarten children and six adults.

In the days following the shooting, initial exclusive reports from the New York Daily News said that Lanza went on his rampage when he learned he was about to be committed to a psychiatric institution by his mother. According to the report, a "bar pal" who did not want to be named told the paper Nancy Lanza told him her son was "burning himself" and that she feared she was "losing him."

The disappearing details

What that initial report also said, according to InfoWars.com, was that Adam Lanza was on a psychotropic drug.

"Adam's uncle....said he was taking an anti-psychotic drug called Fanapt," New York Magazine said in a follow-up report, quoting the initial New York Daily News story.

But then, InfoWars.com noted, that little factoid disappeared from the online versions of those initial reports.

"It's almost certain that the original version of the article did mention this before being amended, and that the NY Mag piece was based on the original NY Daily News piece," InfoWars.com reported.

Why would mainstream newspapers and magazines want to hide the fact that Lanza - and a host of previous mass murderers - were taking psychotropic drugs that almost certainly contributed to their deadly behavior?

The obvious answer is that blaming the drug takes away from their anti-gun agenda.

But the fact that these tragedies are being committed by psychiatric basket cases on drugs has not escaped the attention of everyone.

Big Pharma dollars doing the talking?

In calling for a long-overdue federal investigation into the link between psychiatric drugs and violence, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International cites three telling facts:

-- Despite 22 international drug regulatory warnings on psychiatric drugs that cite effects like mania, violence, hostility and homicidal ideation, as well as scores of high-profile shootings and other killings tied to psychiatric drug use, "there has yet to be a federal investigation on the link between psychiatric drugs and acts of senseless violence," the CCHRI said.

-- At least 14 recent shootings at schools have been committed by someone taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs. The results are telling: 58 killed, 109 wounded. In other school shootings, "information about their drug use was never made public - neither confirming or refuting if they were under the influence of prescribed drugs," CCHRI said.

-- Between 2004 and 2011, there have been 11,000 reports to the Food and Drug Administration's MedWatch system regarding the side effects of psychiatric drugs in relation to violence. Included in these reports: 300 cases of homicide, nearly 3,000 cases of mania and over 7,000 cases of aggression. By the FDA's own admission, CCHRI notes, only 1-10 percent of side effects are even reported to the agency, "so the actual number of side effects occurring are most certainly higher," the international organization said.

Despite these horrendous statistics, there have been no calls by the mainstream media to have use of these drugs examined, let alone banned - unlike guns.

Could that be, in large part, due to the fact that Big Pharma spends tens of millions a year in advertising with the corporate media?
