This is a really interesting conversation. I tried watching it before, but I ended up shutting it off due to the 1st segment's shameless pissing contest about facts and statistics. It becomes far more civil in pts. 2 & 3.
Thankfully, Larry King (and his authoritative suspenders), keeps the reigns on the discussion, although Moore butts his nose in Dr. Gupta's half more than he should. Gupta is more giving than Moore is in the conversation, but it was very upstanding of Moore to apologize to Blitzer for unfortunately singling him out on the network the previous day.
I think this is a necessary discussion. Moore is a filmmaker, not a doctor or a professional in the healthcare field. I don't know if he's the proper vessel to jumpstart this dialogue, but I'm glad he has. I'm sure other professionals will jump in and start a healthy debate about the future of healthcare.
