The great health care debate

The great health care debateLoading This program examines the role of the media and special interest groups in the recent demise of national health care reform. More than $100 million has been spent on public relations, advertising, lobbying, and lawyering in connection with the health care debate, and nearly 100 public relations and lobbying firms have influenced it. These facts raise some tough questions about how our democracy works. How truthful is the information disseminated about health care reform? How do the special interests of an advocacy group shape its message?
