kitten corner: NY times sues EU over pfizer texts
this bingo game is super hard
be honest you guys, i mean, did anyone at all have “NY times sues EU over release of documents on pfizer contract corruption?” on their febraury bingo card?
jeez this game is hard…
“The New York Times is taking the European Commission to court over the executive institution’s failure to release text messages between its president Ursula von der Leyen and Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla.”
and i’m no expert on government procurement or anything, but does anyone else think that maybe “oh, sorry, we used disappearing messages on signal to buy billions of dollars of drugs with public money” is probably not quite as much accountability as is generally expected?
In response, the EU’s Values and Transparency Commissioner Věra Jourová claimed that the text messages may have been deleted, due to their “short-lived, ephemeral nature.”
those europeans, huh?
i mean, can you imagine if they did stuff like this is the US?
