CBS Evening News. In the report, CBS News Correspondent Sharyl Attkisson recounted allegations from a clinical investigator, Dr. Janet McGill of Washington University in St. Louis. McGill said that in 1994, when she was the principal researcher on a study of Rezulin sponsored by Warner Lambert, she got a personal visit from two Warner-Lambert officials when she reported that two of her twenty patients taking Rezulin developed liver problems.McGill claims the Warner-Lambert officials pressured her into downplaying the problems. She told CBS News the company also failed to properly report those liver problems in summary data it submitted to FDA to get Rezulin approved.

This is especially true in the "Web 2.0" era of the interactive Internet when kids are not only "downloading" inappropriate information but "uploading" information about themselves in social networking sites like MySpace and even video sites like YouTube. Today, parents have to worry not just what their kids "see" on the net but what they "say" as well. So what does it mean to be an involved parent?
