Monday TV: Inventing a Fraud

InventorOne of the fastest growing firms in Silicon Valley was something called Theranos, created by a dynamic young entrepreneur named Elizabeth Holmes. Nobody questioned her premise that inserting your finger in a box could do full blood testing. The rich invested and Walgreen’s installed them, until  investigation into its shaky science caused it to drop valuation from $9 billion to zero in one day.

Prosecutor Marcia Clark seems determined to retry the O.J. Simpson case she famously lost.
