A question of accountability

Is there an organized effort (lobby?) that pressures the media to disclose the pharmaceutical ties of the people they are interviewing?

The media habit of publishing a story, such as this one, and failing to disclose that some, if not all of  the "experts" quoted have ties to pharma, is just not good journalism.

So, who is forcing the media to be more accountable in this area?

I am doing my bit where I can and so are you, but I would like to know if there are organizations that are doing this more systematically.
