My brother called me to tell me that 60 Minutes had a propaganda piece for tort reform. Here's the only reference to it on the 60 Minutes web site: "MEDICAL EMERGENCY – Two generations of the Smith family practice medicine, but the third generation may not want to, as malpractice insurance rates go higher and reimbursement keeps getting lower. Mike Wallace reports." I understand from brother that it was not balanced, and presented no real point of view from the opponents of tort limitations.

Who was it who said, "You can't buy publicity like this"?
