Some considered views on British healthcare
Whilst the Tory (sorry, Coalition) government ponders how it can best use next year's BBC licence fee negotiations to eviscerate the corporation, it's worth, for a few moments, taking a short e-trip over to the USA, where we can get some examples of balanced, impartial, well-considered commentary on the NHS in their media.
It's a sad fact of the US that its media culture is utterly dominated not only by loony outlets like Fox News, but countless 'independent' think tanks and so-called academic research institutions like the Manhattan Institute... a torrent of right-wing noise punctured once in a while by the occasional (often milder) voice of reason.
