I’d say this gem from the Missoulian pretty well encapsulates what’s wrong with both the media and the medical industry in the United States today. Where would the public be without the critical eye of the Fourth Estate and essential positions like Vice Presidents for Public Relations at hospitals?One shudders to think about the consequences of missing out on critical updates like this:
"Tiger missed a putt, and he (Rehberg) hollered, and the nurse came running in and said, ‘Are you OK?’ " said Oliverson, the hospital’s vice president of public relations and external affairs. "That kind of gives you vintage Denny. He’s a super guy, and he’s doing really well."
I assume that Mr. Oliverson decided Representative Rehberg was a “super guy” sometime before donating to his campaign last election.
Talk about burying the lede. It’s not until the 6th paragraph that the article mentions the condition of state Dustin Frost and the 7th paragraph that mentions that State Senator and former GOP gubernatorial hopeful Greg Barkus has hired an attorney.
