PR Tricks of the Health Care Industry

Remember how powerful the movie "The Insider" was? A whistleblower from inside the tobacco industry revealing what they knew and how they suppressed it?

Former CIGNA vice president Wendell Potter is going on Bill Moyers' Journal on Friday, July 10, 10:00pm here in the Bay Area on KQED/Channel 9.

This might be one of the more insightful shows on TV this month.

Wendell now works for my friends at the Center for Media and Democracy and has recently written how the health care industry has adopted the tactics of the tobacco industry. (link)

I do remember the tobacco industry shenanigans.

1) Terbacky don't hurt nobody!
2) Not all scientists agree!
3) Everybody knows terbacky kills ya, so we're off the hook!

Same as it ever was for global warming.

And killing us (softly) with health care corporate profits.
