Oh, now I get you—so even though the funding has nothing to do with the outcome of the study but if the study doesn't support your opinion, you can say it's all some sort of conspiracy because for some reason you think there's still some bias there. The study itself is fine—no funding issues, sensitivity analysis is there, crappy studies are excluded out of the pool—but you can still file it under "This looks weird and it doesn't support my own confirmational bias therefore, it must be a conspiracy."
