Ed Silverman, a.k.a., Pharmalot, has thrown in the towel on his blog. Newhouse News and The Star-Ledger of New Jersey have pulled the plug on a number of outlets, including Pharmalot. Silverman took a buy-out last year.
It’s a new era… But somehow, given all of his writings on preemption and lawsuits, I think we’ll see Ed Silverman again. He'll be over at Elsevier in a role yet to be named.
