NYT article criticizes the FDA

Last week, the Government Accountability Office issued a report (available here) critical of the FDA and suggesting it needed broad-based changes. Today The New York Times published an editorial that states: "The Obama administration will have to send a clear signal to the bureaucracy that the days of neglect are over. Officials will also have to make clear that the Bush administration’s practice of distorting science and weakening regulation to favor industry also is over." The NYT article is available here.
