Wendell Potter, formerly a communications officer for the private health insurer 'Cigna', is now the Senior Fellow on Health Care for the Center for Media and Democracy ( http://www.prwatch.org/ ). Thanx for the excellent Bill Moyers link 'wa'. Solidarity & seasons best wishes @ u & yours & in compliment, pls see:

''What does this all mean for our country and our democracy? During my 20 years in corporate communications and public affairs, I participated in the steady growth and influence of largely invisible persuasion -- and at a time when newsrooms are shrinking and investigative journalism seems to be vanishing. The number of P.R. people long ago surpassed the number of working journalists in this country. And that ratio of P.R. people to reporters will continue to grow. The clear winners as this shift occurs are big, rich corporations and other special interests. The losers are average Americans, most of whom are completely unaware how their thoughts and actions are being manipulated to achieve corporate goals on Capitol Hill.''

After all, it was his life's work. He knows how it goes.
