Author calls his own article a "piece of commercial crap"

A psychiatrist slams a ghost-written article published under his name:

After the broadcast, the CME company, i3 CME, presented DeVane with an article based on the discussion, apparently ghost-written by a medical writer hired by the company. DeVane called this a “ridicuous text”¦ parts of it were inaccurate, simplistic, and [contained] over-generalizations.” It is not clear whether DeVane insisted that editorial changes be made. He had not read the final version, and advised that the article be ignored “for purposes of interpreting my research and views.”
