Propaganda Update: TV Networks Will Be Asked to Boost ObamaCare In Plots of Their Top Shows

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/09/16 14:21:22

Abby Goodnough of The New York Times is reporting as the California state government is setting up its ObamaCare exchange, the exchange has hired a PR firm (with federal government money).

"Realizing that much of the battle will be in the public relations realm, the exchange has poured significant resources into a detailed marketing plan — developed not by state health bureaucrats but by the global marketing powerhouse Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide, which has an initial $900,000 contract with the exchange," she wrote. Ogilvy's plan is to tap major network TV shows like "Grey's Anatomy" and "Modern Family" to sell Americans on the health care law:

Hollywood, an industry whose major players have been supportive of President Obama and his agenda, will be tapped. Plans are being discussed to pitch a reality television show about “the trials and tribulations of families living without medical coverage,” according to the Ogilvy plan.

    And these in Hollywood wonder why the TVs are being turned off ..
    why people are NOT going to the movies either ..

    the TVs in my homes are just mounted on the walls ..
    not really used for much (other than collecting dust)
    between the odd times where someone visits .. and pulls out a Classic Movie/Series DVD to enjoy ..

    I noticed the promotion of Obamacare in tv programs before the bill was passed into law. Hollywood acts as a mouthpiece for the left agenda, and has for some time. Lately though, the suggestions and storylines have become more in your face.
