This is the second post in a series of four posts about corporate takedowns. Last week’s post was about American Apparel. Today’s post is about Theranos. The third post on April 17 is about Facebook, focused on the recent Cambridge Analytica data sharing revelations. The fourth and final post, on April 24, will discuss Gawker.
