Blue Cross Talking Points Memo On Sicko Leaked

Adventures in post-documentary public relations: A leaked Blue Cross internal memo on talking points when asked about Sicko found its way to Michael Moore. The four-page document is full of criticisms of Moore’s film and suggestions on dealing with the press.

The memo, from Capital BlueCross’ Corporate Communications VP Barclay Fitzpatrick, also urges employees to emphasize that the “divisive tone” of the movie is not helpful and that “the broader healthcare community is working together to reduce the number of uninsured.” Well, that’s good to know.
