Wendell Potter to Blow His Whistle for Center for Public Integrity

Wendell Potter, best-known for revealing the shady practices of the health insurance industry, will be a senior analyst and columnist for the Center for Public Integrity, writing a twice-weekly column called Health Care Watch.

Potter spent 20 years in public-relations posts for health insurance companies including CIGNA before turning to journalism and exposing the industry’s secrets. He has a new book on the topic, Deadly Spin: An Insurance Company Insider Speaks Out on How Corporate PR Is Killing Health Care and Deceiving Americans.

CPI executive director William E. Buzenberg said:

Wendell has first-hand knowledge of how the health insurance industry does business. His insight as an analyst will be invaluable to the center as we continue to investigate waste, fraud, and corruption in the American health care system.
