SHAME ON ROLLING STONE FOR TAKING TOBACCO MONEY
NEW YORK, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement by Betsy McCaughey:
The October 1, 2009 issue of Rolling Stone Magazine includes the outrageous and fictional accusation that I worked for a tobacco company in writing my critique of the dangers of the Clinton Plan. I did not. I was a scholar at the Manhattan Institute, and did no fundraising or conferring with corporations. Absolutely none. My article was based on text of the Health Security Act, period. Because of the accuracy and insights in the article, it was awarded a National Magazine Award for the best article in the nation on public policy and the H.L. Mencken Award.
It is shocking that fifteen years later, Rolling Stone still accepts tobacco advertising. See page 93 of the current issue. Shame on hypocritical Rolling Stone Magazine.
All the other baseless accusations made by Rolling Stone Magazine regarding my patient advocacy are old hat. I have rebutted them many times. The article is a tired rerun.
What readers should know is that Rolling Stone would rather try to discredit me (however lamely) rather than address the real issues. One is that Obamacare will mean cruel cuts in healthcare for seniors.
