SELLOUT: WebMD promoted Obamacare in exchange for secret payments of almost $14 million
by L.J. Devon, Staff Writer
(NaturalNews) WebMD is now being exposed as a propaganda portal -- a website that accepts bribe money to promote special interests. WebMD can no longer pass as semi-credible source of health information after newly released documents revealed that the federal government has paid the site's content creators nearly $14 million to promote the unpopular insurance mandate called Obamacare.
That's right, the federal government is taking millions of dollars out of the people's wallets and using it to bribe doctor-trusted websites to promote its way of running the medical system. This proves that Obamacare is not about providing affordable or preventive healthcare; it's more concerned with controlling information and funneling people to sign up for medical system insurance. Obamacare has made WebMD its acolyte for keeping consumers obedient to its mandates and spellbound to its "official" health information. This control and witchcraft only distracts people from real health solutions and keeps them caught up in a cycle of pharmakeia disease management. Money is powerful and highly influential, especially when the federal government believes that it has unlimited access to the people's pocketbooks. With the power to extort people, the federal government gains unlimited power and influence, turning entire health websites into propaganda-promotion sites.
Federal government allots nearly $14 million to WebMD to promote Obamacare signupsIn fact, the federal government has rolled out an official initiative called the Health Care Priorities Educational Initiate to see if they can corral Americans to look to Obamacare as the source of "official information" on health. The Department of Health and Human Services has contracted with WebMD to make this happen. HHS released a "limited source justification" extending their contract with WebMD through September 2015, obligating $13,932,914 for promotion of the Affordable Care Act. The money is given to WedMD in exchange for favors like "educating" doctors and consumers about the "benefits" of the law.
In addition, the Affordable Care Act also funds "educational" initiatives through Medscape, another site that provides information to doctors. Doctors are now using the propagated information on Medscape so they can learn how to how to talk to their patients about Obamacare. The initiative is basically training doctors to be the federal government's sheep.
According to the contract document, HHS is basically being tasked with propagandizing the internet and herding healthcare professionals' energy toward implementing and following Obamacare.
"Health Care Providers (HCPs) are important partners to assist in this outreach as they interact with the patient in the most crucial time for decision making on health care," it said. "Additionally, CMS handles education on many priority health topics. This task order will allow CMS to reach a broader consumer and HCP audience on the aforementioned topics."
Now is a good time to question "official sources"When the propaganda pay-off began in September 2011, WebMD agreed to become the law's minion. The recently updated contract allows for an additional $650,000 to be funneled to WebMD for "continued education" of consumers. Can you believe that your health information is being propagandized by the federal government and posted online, through funds extorted from you in the first place?
Today, it's absolutely essential to question all sources of health information and to think for yourself. Bought-off sites like WedMD will make you feel like a victim of your own health, whereas independent sites like Natural News will empower you to take charge of your own health.
Questions to ask about any source of information include: How is the information being funded? Where is the money coming from? What are the motivations and intentions behind the information source? What kind of agenda is behind the information?
The motivations behind WebMD are now clear: They will take secret payments from the federal government in exchange for promoting Obamacare propaganda on their site, even if that means accepting bribe money that was first extorted from the taxpayers. WebMD now devotes a special section on its website to promote Obamacare. A creative team is now being paid to develop videos, quizzes, and guides to facilitate people signing up for health insurance on the exchanges.
The agenda behind the Affordable Care Act is now clear too: control health information online by bribing websites like WedMD to promote health insurance (medical system insurance) signups.
