Peter Weiss says a recent CNN story on medical tourism is completely bogus:
CNN reports a man couldn’t find a better quote for his surgery than a price ten times higher than the going rate. This is bad enough to put all CNN health reporting in question.
I can’t verify the details, but one can’t help noticing that CNN didn’t actually report anything about the price of the service beyond what the man claimed. It’s anyone’s guess whether they didn’t bother to look, or suppressed what they found.
