Hey, now. Charges against Holmes landed yesterday. she settled immediately. Meanwhile we've got 5party sanctions against Russia for an attempted nerve gas assassination in London, physical violence threatened against the porn star the president is trying to silence and a WaPo report that the national security advisor is being forced out.
Rather than pointing at conspiracy, I'd point to buffer overflow. It's not like we're in a slow news cycle and the papers discussing Theranos are still in the goddamn newsstands.
