In his book Deadly Spin, Wendell Potter takes readers behind the scenes to show how a huge chunk of our healthcare spending actually bankrolls a propaganda campaign and lobbying effort focused on protecting one thing: profits. Whatever the fate of the current health care legislation, it makes no attempt to change that fundamental problem. Relentless PR assaults play an insidious role in our political process anywhere that corporate profits are at stake–from climate change to defense policy. Deadly Spin tells us why–and how–we must fight back.
