2,000 Doctors Call on McCain to Release his Medical Records
Press conference call with Robert Greenwald and doctors this Thursday at 11am ET
LOS ANGELES - Over 2,000 MDs and other degreed medical professionals have signed an open letter calling for a "full, public disclosure" of John McCain's medical records. Brave New Films will release the complete list of names to reporters this Thursday. The text of the letter is viewable at http://therealmccain.com/doctors/.
In May, the McCain campaign allowed a small group of reporters to review over 1,000 pages of McCain's medical records from 2000 to 2008 in just three hours and under strict prohibitions. In an interview with the Columbia Journalism Review, Lawrence Altman, M.D., medical correspondent for The New York Times, described the event as such: ". . .to have a slew of reporters and give each individual reporter three hours to go through what was said to be approximately a thousand pages - that's 333 pages per hour, and I don't think speed readers can read that much that fast. . .[the time limit] doesn't allow anyone, in my mind, to make a thorough analysis and recording, which is what you'd want."
This Thursday at 11am ET, Dr. Noah Craft, Dr. Michael Fratkin and Brave New Films founder Robert Greenwald will be available to answer questions for reporters on a conference call. Contact Axel Woolfolk for a call-in number and access code.
