Who owns Sanjay Gupta?

Michael Moore took on the insurance industry in the documentary Sicko. CNN's Sanjay Gupta went above and beyond the call of duty to stand up for the insurance industry on Larry King Live. Gupta spouted inaccurate figures in his right-wing smear of Moore's film account of the US healthcare industry. CNN has acknowleged factual errors in the Gupta interview. Now CNN medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta is Obama's pick for Surgeon General. (Generally not an important cabinet portfolio to be sure, but a very poor pick at this time round, if Obama is truly serious about reforming the US healthcare system).

SPECIAL COVERAGE I live-blogged the spontaneous Obama victory celebration in Washington DC. Experience what it felt like to be among thousands of deliriously happy people gathered outside the White House. Click here.

Previously, I had been blogging about the Obama, McCain and the US election. I wrote about Sarah Palin on this blog even before McCain chose her to be his running mate. The choice was disappointing, and a possibility I had anticipated.
