You know those medication ads on TV, right? With the catchy jingle and the animated pill that practically does a jig while it cures everyone it touches. Let’s not forget the adorably quirky names they give these pills, like “O’beeboop” or what have you. It all seems so helpful, almost harmless, doesn’t it?

Who can forget the Chantix ad with Herb? Just take a minute to take in the horrific list of potential side effects that come with it.

Unsurprisingly, Chantix got yanked from the shelves due to impurities found in the medication. But no sweat for Big Pharma—they’re playing a much bigger game with their advertising strategies anyway. You might think Big Pharma’s flood of ads is just to get Americans to pester the heck out of their doctors for more pills, but that’s barely scratching the surface. The real game is much deeper and a helluva lot scarier. And we’re talking big bucks, folks…


Pharma advertising spending in the U.S. amounted to an average of one billion dollars monthly by the end of 2022. The United States is the largest pharmaceutical market worldwide, accounting for almost half of global revenues in 2022. Nowhere else do consumers spend as much money on prescription drugs, over-the-counter medication, and other healthcare products and services as in the U.S..

A whistleblower laid it all out on Tucker Carlson’s show, revealing the real reason behind those non-stop ads. It’s not merely a savvy marketing strategy to boost sales; it’s how they wield power over the media.

This is a topic that Joe Rogan has also delved into.


Those ads do more than just pay the bills—they steer the entire news narrative in a direction that serves Big Pharma’s vast and never-ending interests.

Popular conservative X account “The Vigilant Fox” shared the bombshell clip in a powerful post:

Holy smokes. Suspicions confirmed.

Former Pharma insider tells Tucker Carlson that the true goal of pharma ads on TV is not to sell drugs but to BUY OFF the news media.

This is described as an “open secret” within the pharmaceutical industry.

TUCKER: You’re saying that pharma buys TV spots not to convince people to ask for specific drugs from their physicians, but to subvert the news business?

CALLEY MEANS: This is an open secret working for pharma.

TUCKER: I never thought of that.

CALLEY MEANS: This is an open secret working for pharma. This is an open secret. The kind of silly ads you see between the news breaks, the points of that is not — it’s largely to impact the customer. But the pharma has already got that. They’ve already bought off the doctors. They’re good on that.

No, this is an open secret. The news ad spending from pharma is a public relations lobbying tactic, essentially to buy off the news. They’re not investigating pharma. The news has become basically a referee. That you are a terrible anti-science luddite for asking why the shots that we require our kids to get, that fundamentally by their own advertising change the immune system of that child for life…

To even ask that question, the news referees that and calls you anti-science. When the two largest vaccine makers in the country are literally criminal enterprises, GlaxoSmithKline and Merck, in the past five years, have settled two of the largest criminal penalties in American corporate history for bribing doctors and creating misleading research for the two largest vaccine makers. So you literally have the media playing referee that you can’t even ask a question.

TUCKER: If you have a vaccine injury and many people have, including some I know very well, even a profound vaccine injury, you’re not allowed to complain about it.

CALLEY MEANS: No, you’re “anti-science.”

TUCKER: Even if it can be shown to us that this is a vaccine injury?

CALLEY MEANS: The media plays referee because they’re funded by so, on all levels.

TUCKER: This is very dark, Calley Means

Kudos to those of you who’ve already figured this out—truly, well done. But the reality is that many Americans haven’t caught on yet. We’re still uncovering the depth of corruption in this country, and sometimes it feels like the job is never-ending. Every layer we peel back reveals yet another level of deceit.

In terms of Big Pharma, we’ve officially cracked the code on why they flood our airwaves with ads, but the bigger question remains: who gave them the green light to do this? Imagine if we had a media genuinely driven by curiosity and integrity. Someone from the New York Times could harness their vast resources, dig deep, and expose the full story. But, sadly, that’s wishful thinking these days. In reality, our government, media, and medical establishment are deeply and dangerously intertwined with Big Pharma’s supply chain. Doctors get their education from pharma-sponsored universities; the government pushes or mandates these medications; and the media is owned by Big Pharma through cutesy cartoon ads. It’s an intricate web of influence and obligations—a real racket.

When you really stop and think about it, Big Pharma isn’t just a major player; it’s a colossal force likely dictating far more of our country’s inner workings, policies, and even global decisions than we ever imagined.
