Wendell Potter worked for Cigna Health Care as an insurance industry executive for 15 years. He left last year to become a health care reform advocate.
Bill Moyers interviews Potter tonight about what is really going on within the Health Care Industry and how that very same industry worked diligently to invalidate filmmaker Michael Moore and his film SICKO by creating the notion that Michael Moore was working toward a “Liberal Agenda” (i.e. socialism) and that the facts in his film were untrue and misleading. Moore was to be calculatingly discredited.
Here are two clips from the interview. I’ll start with the second part first as it addresses Michael Moore and SICKO. The second clip focuses on Potter’s experience and decision to walk away from the Health Care Industry and speak out honestly on not only Moore’s behalf, but on the behalf of all people who want to see a major change in America’s Health care system.
