Opposition to Gupta

John Conyers is raising concerns about CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta as surgeon general. Apparently, his faulty and wrong "reality check" of Michael Moore's "Sicko" is part of the reason. We played the back and forth between Moore and Gupta on the show this week -- having done so back when it happened in 2007 as well -- and it's clear that Gupta got it all wrong, and knew it, but also knew that he it was easy to demonize someone like Michael Moore. You can view it below. Not good. Glad Conyers is raising this, though I'm sure Gupta will sail through.
