8. It's called

(and you should know this) - "transparency".

It's the "public comments". Generally the people who attend these meetings to give those comments are non-Committee members and are often members of various organizations that follow "public health" issues (including people who are physicians, and other scientific personnel).

Basically each person who signed up is given 3 minutes to give their comment.

The problem with the FDA's committee vs CDC's committee at the moment is no one seems to strictly be controling the clock for FDA's meeting.

CDC says - "when the timer hits red and you are at 'time's up', if you keep talking, your mic will be cut". FDA has no controller at all. The software just counts down from green to yellow to red, and people end up going on for a minute or two past their time - usually with nothing but bullshit. In fact the last one (I think they are done with this segment now because they went on a break) included some fucking Niki Minaj-supporting "doctor" (and I put "doctor" in quotes).
