CBS Nukes Wisconsin Quackbuster Assault...

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

November 18th, 2003


Who says the national media isn't interested in the attack on Alternative Medicine? If it was YOU, don't say it any more, because it just happened in Madison, Wisconsin.  And, it wasn't that hard to accomplish.

I intentionally forgot to mention, in my articles about the War in Wisconsin, that CBS television was filming our every move in Madison, Wisconsin's capitol. I also neglected to mention that CBS was traveling around the State, interviewing top AltMed leaders on camera.

Of course, I kept it to myself that CBS was carefully directed to take a HARD look at the Quackbuster operation nationwide, including the dubious National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), the questionable website, and their relationship with two card-carrying quackbuster members employed as Wisconsin Department of Regulation & Licensing (DRL) prosecutors, Arthur Thexton, and James Polewski.

Why did I keep this quiet? When we've been working on this for months? I like to surprise the quackbusters. It's good for their psyche. 

I have no idea how we could have done all this media filming without the quackpots catching on. I mean, there were cameras everywhere. CBS filmed the WHOLE hearing we had in front of the Wisconsin Assembly Health Committee. CBS interviewers practically beat down DRL's door trying to interview quackbusters Thexton and Polewski. In typical quackbuster fashion, they hid from the cameras.

I'm not going to tell you what CBS said. I'm going to send you to their website, and let you read the broadcast summary  of 'It's Clearly A Witch Hunt' for yourself. But pay close attention to one quote from the new head of the DRL, Donsia Strong Hill, when she says "What I inherited were a group of prosecutors who basically had functioned in the past with very little supervision over them or direction or even the establishment of priorities," Strong Hill said. "We certainly have changed that."

When News 3 asked Strong Hill, "You're supervising them more closely?" She responded, "They are definitely being supervised more closely."

We, the North American Health Freedom Movement, have really only BEGUN the War in Wisconsin. There is a lot of work to be accomplished. A lot of things that need to be completed.

And, CBS has just begun their "Investigative Report" on the subject. Of course we provided CBS with video tape of the cross-examination of NCAHF president, and hair removal specialist, Robert S. Baratz, including his tearful testimony, and his physical reaction when confronted with the reality of his professional career.

I love it when a plan comes together.

Stay tuned...
