Host Ellen Kamhi PhD RN, www.naturalnurse.com , interviews Wendell Potter. Wendell Potter is a senior analyst at the Center for Public Integrity, the senior fellow on health care at the Center for Media and Democracy, a highlighted contributor for the Huffington Post, and a leading critic of the health insurance industry. After a thirty-year career in public relations, he left his job as a corporate PR executive to speak out against what he had seen and been a part of during his years in the health insurance industry. Since he walked away as head of communications at a top health insurance company in May of 2008, he has worked tirelessly as an outspoken critic of corporate PR and the distortion and fear manufactured by America’s health insurance industry. It is a PR juggernaut that is bankrolled by millions of dollars, rivaling lobbying budgets and underwriting many "non-partisan" and "grassroots" organizations. Wendell has appeared on countless television and radio programs and been quoted in newspapers and magazines around the world. Time magazine wrote that Potter “may be the ideal whistleblower.” Today, we will discuss Wendell Potter’s new book, DEADLY SPIN
