Wendell Potter, Healthcare Reform

Listen

(Duration: 58:31)

Wendell Potter has served since May 2009 as CMD's Senior Fellow on Health Care. After a 20-year career as a corporate public relations executive, last year he left his job as head of communications for one of the nation's largest health insurers (Cigna) to try his hand at helping socially responsible organizations -- including those advocating for meaningful health care reform -- achieve their goals. He speaks out on both the need for a fundamental overhaul of the American health care system and on the dangers to American democracy and society of the decline of the media as watchdog, which has contributed to the growing and increasingly unchecked influence of corporate PR.
