Michael Moore Uncensored

Michael Moore takes on the CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Dr. Sanjay Gupta on the Iraq war and his movie on the US healthcare system, Sicko.

 A transcript from the report:

Rudy Giuliani: “The free market principles are the only things that reduce cost and improve quality. Socialised medicine will ruin medicine in the United States”.

Moore: “…We have one of the largest socialised system called medicare … even though it is under funded and too much control has been handed over to private companies…”

A longer video on the topic in which the CNN’s “reality check” preceeds Michael Moore’s response.

    I think this movie should be seen by every American, regardless of what you think about socialized anything…Having said that, the one thing that we should keep in mind is that our current health care system is an industry, and they want to make profits. The only way they can make profits is to increase prices or deny health care. I think this is just unacceptable in this country. I actually posted a good post about some of the things that intrigued me from the movie on my blog, feel free to take a look and comment. http://skcvoyager.blogspot.com/2007/07/my-take-on-sicko.html

    Good post, Sydney. It is indeed ironical that a country with some of the most advanced technologies in medical treatment, has a system where so many patients get taken for a ride by insurance companies.

    “I dont talk in sound bytes” – is there a better way to define our murdoch media ?

    I had a good mind to title the post as “I don’t talk in sound bytes”.

    One must admire CNN for once to have him prime time uncensored.
