Coming Soon: Pro-Obamacare Propaganda in TV Shows

In an act that must surely be utter desperation, a center that helps ensure scripts for TV doctors are at least partially accurate has received a $500,000 check to help plaster pro-Obamacare propaganda messages all over prime time television shows.

Marketplace reports:

Hollywood Health & Society, a program with the USC Annenberg Norman Lear Center got a $500,000 grant this week from The California Endowment to help TV writers tell better stories about the new health insurance law. 

Why try to get your public health message into fictional story lines? People learn from TV,” says Marty Kaplan, the director of the Norman Lear Center. “Even if they know it is fiction, even if they know if writers can make stuff up, especially in the realm of medicine and public health, if a doctor says something to a patient, people tend to think that someone has checked that, that it’s true,” Kaplan says. 

Kaplan’s group works to make sure that at least some of what comes out of doctors’ mouths is real, or at least real-ish. Hollywood Health & Society has worked with nearly 100 TV shows — everything from “Mad Men” to “Desperate Housewives” to “Dr. Vegas” and “The Bold and the Beautiful.” The Center has access to the megaphone that is Hollywood. [emphasis added]

So because our politicians are divided over the massive deception that is Obamacare — like the fact that it’s already a privacy nightmare and it isn’t even fully live yet or that the enrollment launch was a ridiculous failure — now Hollywood is going to try and dress a pig up and sell Americans a princess?


I can see it now.

Crying, melodramatic wife character: “What can we do, doctor? He doesn’t look good!” 

Fake doctor: “Well ma’am, I’m afraid that only Obamacare can save him now…” 

Crying, melodramatic wife character, sniffling melodramatically: “Where can I sign up?!”


I know it isn’t going to happen, but can someone please pay them more to return the check and just tell the truth?
