NBC Pulls a Micahel Moore -- Heads to Cuba
Wednesday, May 30, 2007 - reddit
Now this is rich, it's been in the news that the U.S. Treasury Department is investigating Michael Moore for violating the travel ban on Cuba, where he took several 9/11 survivors to get the kind of cheap and solid health care they can't get in the United States due to our system which favors corporate interests and insurers over sick people.
Moore thinks it's just the Bush administration abusing federal agencies as a weapon for personal and partisan political games, and he's 100% right, because NBC is going to Cuba to shoot The Today Show live
-- and they are publicizing it.
Although Lauer is a frequent round-the-world traveler for "Today," it took 18 months to arrange the visit to a country only 90 miles from the United States, said Jim Bell, the show's executive producer. Bell used his ability to speak Spanish in the negotiations.
News organization that hasn't had the balls to challenge the administration on anything for the past six years -- good to go. A documentary film maker illustrating how communist Cuba has better health care than the United States does -- childish persecution on baseless grounds.
That's our government in a nutshell folks.
