Who is Wendell Potter - and what's his connection to Obama?

Posted on 08/15/2009 4:56:15 AM PDT by wilco200

This guy has been all over the news lately as a "industry whistleblower" but it's clear that he is just the latest tactic by the Obama administration to attack the American people.

I know he's a big fan of Michael Moore and socialized medicine but has anyone dug up any monetary link to Obama or his thugs?

FR does have a vast knowledge base within its members and has done great work in the past.

Wendell Potter has served since May 2009 as CMD’s Senior Fellow on Health Care. CMD is the Center for Media and Democracy, about which Discover the Networks.org has this to say; “In CMD’s view, capitalism generally, and corporations in particular, are the principal root causes of societal ills in the U.S. and abroad. The Capital Research Center, which rates the ideological leanings of nonprofit organizations, places CMD near the extreme far left of the spectrum. The website ActivistCash, which provides “information about the funding source[s] of radical anti-consumer organizations and activists,” characterizes CMD as “a counterculture public relations effort disguised as an independent media organization.”

Thank you. Go info. As this guy gets more and more air time (already seen him 3 times on CNN and MSNBC in the last 24 hours). He needs to be shot down but the facts. Zero is on the ropes, but he’s not out. This guy is just the latest tactic.

I have no idea who “Wendell Potter” is, never heard of the guy - but, if he’s close to Obama then I would predict (without knowing the facts, mind you) that he is either a red-diaper baby, knows Mike Klonsky personally, or an anti-Semite, with about a 15% chance of the trifecta.

HAR, HAR.

As if either of those ABCNNBCBS networks would ever research the truth.

Is this the guy who is a "whistleblower" --formerly connected to CIGNA in some way?

I had CIGNA one year---that was a nightmare--about like ObamaCare would be, IMO.

Once, a R.N. was on line telling me that the doctor's treatment wouldn't be honored. I asked if she had a license to practice medicine and if not that she was in fact practicing medicine without a license and I would report the whole company. The nurse backed down. CIGNA was horrible!

CIGNA was a HMO—what I had was a joke. It sounded good on paper—didn’t work in the real world.
