    I wish MM would have pointed out that Dr. Gupta had more factual errors in his 3 minute piece (Cuba costs $25) than he did in his two hour movie.

    Also the huge debt that Medicare is running is largely due to the cost of the prescription drug (company) benefit that Bush pushed through. It is a huge giveaway to pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies, exactly what MM is complaining about.

      He doesn't want the change because CNN advertisers would be anry if he said anything else.

      All those pharma ads pushing pills to relieve symptoms add up. Pharma would be pissed if any CNN reporter said unreserved good things about SICKO!

      •  Why are prescription drugs advertised on TV? (0+ / 0-)

        Isn't medical training required to diagnose their proper usage? Hey, doctor (I get to see one on average 15 minutes a year), give me a prescription for x, y, and z that I saw advertised on TV. I want brand name drugs!
