Press Release Body: Stephen Barrett - Professional Crackpot...
The Internet needs health information it can trust. Stephen Barrett doesn\'t provide

Barrett is one of those people whose ambitions and opinions of himself far exceeds
his abilities. Without ANY qualifications he has set himself up as an expert in
just about everything having to do with health care - and more.

And this from a man who is a professional failure.

Records show that Barrett never achieved any success in the medical profession. His
claim to being a \"retired Psychiatrist\" is laughable. He is, in fact, a \"failed
Psychiatrist,\" and a \"failed MD.\"

The Psychiatric profession rejected Barrett years ago, for Barrett could NOT pass
the examinations necessary to become \"Board Certified.\" Which, is no doubt why
Barrett was, throughout his career, relegated to lower level \"part time\" positions.

Barrett, we know, was forced to give up his medical license in Pennsylvania in 1993
when his \"part-time\" employment at the State Mental Hospital was terminated, and he
had so few (nine) private patients during his last five years of practice, that he
couldn\'t afford the Malpractice Insurance premiums Pennsylvania requires.

In a job market in the United States, where there is a \"doctor shortage,\" Stephen
Barrett, after his termination by the State mental Hospital, couldn\'t find
employment. He was in his mid-50s at the time. He should have been at the top of
his craft - yet, apparently, he couldn\'t find work.

It is obvious, that, after one humiliation after another, in 1993 Barrett simply
gave up his medical aspirations, turned in his MD license, and retreated, in
bitterness and frustration, to his basement.

It was in that basement, where Barrett took up \"quackbusting\" - which, in reality,
means that Barrett attacks \"cutting-edge\" health professionals and paradigms - those
that ARE achieving success in their segment of health care.

And there, in \"quackbusting\" is where Barrett finally found the attention and
recognition he seems to crave - for, a while, that is, until three California
Judges, in a PUBLISHED Appeals Court decision, took a HARD look at Barrett\'s
activities, and declared him \"biased, and unworthy of credibility.\"

Bitterness against successful health professionals is Barrett\'s hallmark. To him
they\'re all \"quacks.\" In this, his essays are repetitive and pedestrian.

Barrett, in his writings, says the same things, the same way, every time - change
the victim and the subject, and still you yawn your way through his offerings. It\'s
like he\'s filling out a form somebody gave him...

Take an overactive self importance, couple it with glaring failure and rejection in
his chosen profession, add a cup of molten hatred for those that do succeed, pop it
in the oven - and out comes Stephen Barrett - self-styled \"expert in everything.\"

Barrett, we know, along with his website, is currently named, among other things, in
a racketeering (RICO) case in Federal Court in Colorado.

He\'s also being sued for his nefarious activities in Ontario, Canada.

Barrett, in the Canadian case, has formally admitted, according to Canadian law, to
a number of situations put to him by the Plaintiff, including:

\"The sole purpose of the activities of Barrett & Baratz are to discredit and cause
damage and harm to health care practitioners, businesses that make alternative
health therapies or products available, and advocates of non-allopathic therapies
and health freedom.\"

\"Barrett has interfered with the civil rights of numerous Americans, in his efforts
to have his critics silenced.\"

\"Barrett has strategically orchestrated the filing of legal actions in improper
jurisdictions for the purpose of frustrating the victims of such lawsuits and
increasing his victims costs.\"

\"Barrett failed the exams he was required to pass to become a Board Certified
Medical Doctor.\"
