Who reads Question Authority and how much?

I have reviewed the frequently returning visitors over the past week and here are the more well known names:

U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Senate, U.S. Department of Commerce, FDA, National Institutes of Health, Institute for Defense Analysis, United Nations Office at Geneva, WHO/Uppsala Monitoring Center

New York Times, WSJ, BusinessWeek, Brandweek, Star-Ledger, Tribune Newspapers, Institutional Investor, Knight Ridder Newspapers, Medical Marketing & Media, Congressional Quarterly, Putnam Media

Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Novartis, Merck, BMS, Glaxo, Serono, Boehringer-Ingelheim, Amgen, Sanofi-Aventis, Eli Lilly, Wyeth, Eisai, Takeda, Johnson & Johnson, Biogen, Warner-Chilcott, IMS Health

Epstein Becker & Green, Covington & Burling, Arnold & Porter, Cantor Colburn, Gardner Carton & Dallas, Ropes & Gray, James Hoyer Newcome & Smiljanich, Pepper Hamilton & Sheetz, King & Spalding, Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale, Hale & Dorr, Boies Schiller & Flexner

KPMG, PWC, Ernst & Young, McKinsey & Co, Morgan Stanley Group, Calvert Group, Taxpayers Against Fraud

Robinson Lerer & Montgomery, Ruder Finn, McCann-Ericsson/Torre Lazur, Ogilvy PR, Young & Rubicam, Grey Advertising, Ogilvy & Mather, WPP Group, D’Arcy Macius Benton & Bowles

All of these government agencies, newspapers, drug companies, law firms, accounting firms, investment firms, management consulting firms, and PR and advertising agencies read Question Authority during the course of their business, probably as part of their jobs, otherwise I wouldn't have captured those names.

So how often do people come here?

Below are the total numbers for the past 6 months, as well as the daily average, which also includes weekends when traffic is much lower. Total annualized page loads start to get close to a million, or more than 60,000 page loads on a monthly basis, equivalent to about 2,200 per day out of which 1,700 are registered as "unique visitors." Individual vistor numbers are inherently unreliable since many visitors from one company will register as one unique visitor from one IP address.

These lists are amazing.

Yes some list. The major big pharma companies, the wrongdoers and their apologists, the lawyers, the accountants, the investing firms and so on.
The first five with Pfizer leading the list are also pretty low on the "ethical" list that came out recently. Pfizer and Novartis are next to each other 4th and 5th this year same position last year except the places reversed. All already got caught with their pill making pants down except the Swiss Miss, Novartis. They had few minor things that amount to slap on the wrist but nothing major like Pfizer (we all know it) or BMS with thier 499 million deal with DOJ recently.
All those on the list have their reasons to peep, with the big pharma cos. the strongest one. After all this blog IS about their dark side that they continue with and will not stop till something realy big happens, like BigPharma Nurenberg in the Bigpharmaland.
Our Doc here with help from whistleblower army that needs to overerun the Bigpharmaland will Rx it for them, we all hope.

This list is almost like, who is who in the big pharma, regulatory and law enforcement authorities,law firms and the rest. Even some agencies of UN. Dr. Rost everyone knows you. But why?
The DOJ and other authorities are trying to get info as to how to "catch the tief" while the tief(s) is trying to get info how to not get cought. Learn as much as possible about the demise of those bigpharma cos. that did get caught. Also if they can get any heads up on a potential whistleblower from their own ranks, the better. They can adujst their stance and perhaps "cook" their books and computers. The name of the game is cover up so they need as much of info as possible.
It is done during business hours too. That means the security detail is charged with the task of daily monitoring. And they have the best. As Dr. Rost described it, Pfizer has a special security "bunker" equiped as well as any security service of any country. OK somewhat smaller than CIA's.
All those other companies watching, have the same and is clear that watching the blogs has become the regular daily work for them.
They never comment or make any visable reaction, that is given. What are they going to do though? Dr. Rost do you have any ideas? Are they going to strick back in some way or they are going to be hapy with free info?
Anyone any ideas? Will take some even from those watching us under "anonimass".

So glad you posted these, which caused me to watch my site a little closer, and yes even I, the lowly mom in tennis shoes has Eli Lilly and AstraZeneca reading my blog. Eli Lilly has been interested in my Pharma posts about dog medications. Prozac anyone?
PS thanks for the idea, cause that's why ive posted some of my stats as well.

I like readers to realize there is some influence happening in the blogosphere.

I watch my site too and recognise some of those visitors, though nowhere near as many as you.

Pfizer can throw infinite amounts of money on lawyers and anyone else happy enough to get their money that way and they can buy their way out of accountability, but there's one thing they can NEVER buy, the peace of mind that they did nothing wrong and therefore have nothing to worry about.

Which is why they have little choice but to continuously watch the ever increasing number of people in the world watching them.

It can be a bit disconcerting at times but I expect you, like most of us, would rather be watched by Pfizer than be accepting payments from them.
