Is CBS Pushing a Political Agenda?

I am extremely leery of their in depth story on defensive medicine.

The reason probably has something to do with the fact that the centerpiece of their story is supposedly the Dr's daughter, but she went to the emergency room without consulting him before, during or after.

He learned of it when he got the bill. Miraculously, he knew which tests should have been done and that he had been cover charged by $8,500 right off the bat, AND HE HAD THE CONNECTIONS To GET FEATURED IN A CBS IN DEPTH STORY.

I especially loved the tips for service shopping and price comparisons in the emergency room, don't you?

Do you think his daughter didn't trust his professional judgement or that some combination of he's not a Dr., she's not his daughter because this story was the brainchild of a rogue public relations firm?
