- Exposed: WebMD betrays Americans by pocketing millions to promote Obamacare propaganda (Natural News, Nov 19, 2013):
A new investigation has revealed that one of the foremost online resources for health information accepted millions of dollars from the federal government in exchange for its promotion of Obamacare. As reported by The Washington Times, the federal government awarded WebMD a $4.8 million contract for its agreement to post pro-Obamacare propaganda on its website, including the deceptive article “7 Surprising Things About the Affordable Care Act.”
A contract document obtained by The Washington Times reveals that the Obama administration funneled cash lump sums to WebMD each time it posted articles or information endorsing the health care program. WebMD also reportedly accepted funds as part of a federal scheme to indoctrinate physicians about Obamacare, so that they, too, could dispense propaganda about the program to help build support for it.
Based on the leaked fee schedule, it was revealed that WebMD had been contracted to receive $126,826 in taxpayer funds for each single 5,000 word review article it posted on scientific advances in a specific clinical topic. The site also received nearly $70,000 for a single four-minute video it posted from an opinion specialist. And an astounding $140,000 was awarded for a single eight-question online quiz posted to the site.
