Health Care Ad Gone Bad: Advertising and Government
Whorunsgov.com reports an interesting tidbit about the current Healthcare situation. It appears CNN refuses to run an ad that singles out top Health Insurance industry executives by name. The criticism that would come toward this civilian from such a stunt would be enormous. some say this is justified however due the the massive amounts of profits and fortune they have gathered at the expense of others.

For instance, the names of those who have promoted and sell bio medically engineered crop and pesticide, those who patent seeds and sue those who have been sowing them for years, and those who make massive profits off of oil drilling and distribution. Any of these names, if leaked out to the geeneral public could very well cause serious physical and financial harm to the individuals.
It is a really tough decision. Life hangs in the balance on this one. However, how many peoples lives hung in the balance for these peoples profits?
