SSRI Antidepressant campaign - stage managed by PR company years before FIDDAMAN ever first took Seroxat

In May 1991, The National Journal reported that Hill and Knowlton had for the previous three years represented the Church of Scientology and that Michael F. Barrett Jr., the former chief counsel to the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, said that Hill & Knowlton helped the Scientologists press for a subcommittee investigation of the antidepressant drug Prozac." Barret stated that Hymel had set up a meeting at which a Scientology affiliate had requested the investigation. "I just made the introductions and they did the presentations. . . . I didn't advocate one way or another," Hymel said.[8]

In April 2002, O'Dwyers reported that Hymel was one of a team of seven Hill and Knowlton consultants "that is trying to salvage Enron" and were "managing the flow of information between new management and Capitol Hill."[9]

In August 2005 O'Dwyers PR Daily reported that Fidelity Investments had hired Hill & Knowlton "as its lobbyist dealing with Securities and Exchange Commission regulations." It reported that one of the two H&K staff managing the account was Hymel.[10] In March 2008 the SEC "charged fund manager Fidelity Investments and 13 current or former employees including high-ranking executives for improperly accepting more than $1.6 million in travel, entertainment, and other gifts paid for by outside brokers courting the massive trading business Fidelity generates on behalf of the mutual funds it manages."[11]
