    ABC News demonstrated, within 12 seconds, that they:

    A. Do not know what 'self-made' means.
    B. Did not bother to research Holmes.
    C. Are lying for some reason.
    D, None of the above

    I don't know the answer. I know why I stopped taking corporate media seriously twenty-some years ago.

    Who is laughing when thousands of patients gradually suffer a slow death from complications and thousands of dollars added to their burden for further treatment all because of misdiagnosis of blood that lead to the wrong medications and wrong results.

  • GhostMacross01
    GhostMacross01 21 day ago

    Before medication and surgery there is a need for blood diagnosis testing. I am no doctor. Use theranos product for months among similar equipment from other manufacturers. Patient complications and die.

    Does anyone else have the nasty thought she could have been the biggest mass murderer in recent history? If she had released the blood test tech product under pressure by investors and say it was a bad batch.

  • GhostMacross01
    GhostMacross01 21 day ago

    Fraud is the least she should be charged.

    She is a thieving deceitful unrepentant manipulative whore.

    She had an older Asian Indian guy as a lover and her attitude and behavior are like the Asian Indians as a people, society, and culture I have known for years. You can call me racist but I grew up to know many of these racist lying violent poverty people who take my people's jobs as medical doctors, IT & electronic technicians, and vocational trades with false degrees and half-baked work. If I did not know she was white Caucasian I could have labeled her as an Asian Indian.

    The technology testing may have not worked for Theranos and the deception Miss Elizabeth Holmes may have delivered to millions of people, plus the billions of money that have been lost, I do not agree in the way she may have sold herself to the world on this revolutionary changing idea, that will save so many lives, though in her defense, and my own opinion if Miss Holmes had not thought, created, programmed, designed and tested this idea to the world, then we all would never move forward in finding ways of allowing humans to be detected of illness and prolonging early death.. Now the idea is out there, I wait for the next person that moves and achieves blood testing that will in fact work. In addition, what are we doing, attacking a person on her eyes, or the fact the voice she chooses to speak, let's not focus on working as a global union by using this creative idea and research and trial ways of making it happen.

    • toomanyaccounts
      toomanyaccounts 29 days ago

      what Thernaos was claiming is already being researched. except companies are being a lot more honest about the number of tests that can be done with a single machine. its why everyone in the med field said she was full of crap.

    Btw. I love the way she stares, when trying to look innocent ... it always makes me remember H.Clinton in a strange, but also familiar way.

  • Sebastian Gruber-Kersting

    But where is the surprise in all this? Feminists wanted to see most successful females, politicians supported that idea, and every one was so busy helping to make it happen, that all common sense were thrown into the bin.
    They got what they were looking for ... just a little different from what was expected in the first place. Life is like that! You open the door and then you look what comes through that open door, no matter what it will be. If one wants to see a more specific outcome , one has to make sure about what can come through the door in some way, not just opening it as wide as possible.
