Hey, maybe she could go help the Venezuelans with their health care system!

I can't read the full article. Do we know if anyone failed to receive proper medical treatment due to false /faked test results?

I'm sure the WSJ will get an apology from Theranos for all the lies Theranos spread about them when the first story came out.

I don't understand how and why a technology with so little QC evidence could / would be used for medical diagnostic tests. If anyone has been harmed as a result I hope Theranos & its responsible employees are sued into penury & charged with appropriate criminal charges.

Walgreens fired the exec who made the deal with Theranos, and boy was it a doozie:

http://www.wsj.com/articles/craving-gro ... 1464207285
Walgreens officials considered walking away from the partnership but then hesitated because of worries that Theranos might sue for breach of contract and claim billions of dollars in damages. Walgreens doesn’t expect to recoup its investment of at least $50 million in Theranos.

Walgreen Terminates Partnership With Blood-Testing Firm Theranos

The big news:
“In light of the voiding of a number of test results, and as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has rejected Theranos’s plan of correction and considers sanctions, we have carefully considered our relationship with Theranos and believe it is in our customers’ best interests to terminate our partnership,” Brad Fluegel, Walgreens’ senior vice president and chief healthcare commercial market development officer, said in a statement.

Tim Draper is still claiming that nothing is wrong at Theranos.

That rant explains all their problems. Why would pharma companies give any shits about blood draws? And as the number one purchaser of medical tests, the government would be all over that shit. Maybe Holmes should have gotten some board members that know the difference between labs, medical devices and pharma companies.

A fake Elizabeth Holmes account is following me on twitter, inexplicably.

Here's an interesting, but lengthy, piece about Ms. Holmes. After reading it, I can't figure out if she was knowingly conning people, or sincerely bought her own hype.
