CNN's response to Michael Moore
This is some very interesting reading . . . right here.
At the end of this very long "he said, she said," my impression is that CNN correctly caught a few minor issues with the data in the film, but that they were, indeed, very minor, and CNN clearly tried to make those minor points into a big deal that would somehow discredit Moore's film.
Moore's position is also understandable.
Having read this it is clear that Moore proved his case, and that CNN greatly exaggerated the concerns they should've had about the film.
Very interesting. I'll look at CNN differently in the future. It may also be the case that no U.S. doctor can be trusted to be truly interested in patients' health, and that most of them, just like CNN's Dr. Gupta, will do anything they can to keep the current system going, while claiming sainthood, like Dr. Gupta, who points out that he is a "practicing physician, serving as a neurosurgeon for the past five years at a large indigent-care hospital."
These doctors are part of the problem with U.S. healthcare and the American Medical Association is one key reason we didn't get universal healthcare sixty years ago.
The stripes don't wash off . . .
