Not I, said the little red hen....lol I said he was a corporate tool and would always be..well the proof of it showed this week even more than before.
Rick Sanchez along with most of the media has also shown their true colors in this run up to the final laps in the Health Care Debate. He had Gupta and a representative from my own state of Missouri, Roy Blunt on his show Monday to discuss Health Care and the Republican version of it. Yeah, there is supposed to be one.
Now just keep reminding yourself that Gupta was supposed to be the Surgeon General pick at one time. I never liked him, never thought he would be a good pick, never believed he was the choice of the White House. I thought all along it was a publicity maneuver of CNN.
One of the things you have to remember is how he tried his best to destroy Michael Moore and the movie Sicko. Which has now been proven to be 150% true. That link is just one and takes you to Krugman's blog, there has also been the Moyer's interview with Wendell Potter formally with Cigna Ins. Co. in which he says the movie was exactly right and Michael Moore was spot on.
The PBS piece is worth watching and is very informative about the Health Care Reform. Potter was also on the Ed Show last week, and said some of the same things.
But, the point is.. Gupta was a bad pick if he was ever the pick for Surgeon General and he just reinforces it when he shows himself in this video as an insurance shill.
Of course Roy Blunt is just as bad, but then he is married to a lobbyist and is paid off by them and as a republican is not wanting anything to do with any kind of Health Care Reform that would be good for the people in America. Anything they (the republicans) want has to be good for them and getting them back in power, and making the president look bad in the process.
I got this video and the transcript of it can be found at Crooks & Liars/Video Cafe.
