Florida's insurance law revisions are a stench in the nostrils of our Nation, a classless case of "regulatory capture" gone amuck. "Let the public be damned," as Cornelius Vanderbilt said.
Silly satrap Boy Governor RONALD DION DeSANTIS is a political prostitute for special interests like Big Oil and insurance companies. Fun fact: DeSANTIS is now polling in fifth place in the New Hampshire primary. Karma.
Sadly, under the thumb of GANNETT's oligopoly of some 22 Florida newspapers, this industry domination of Florida's legislature went largely unreported.
Shame on GANNETT,
Sadly, our local NPR affiliate, WJCT in Jacksonville, thrice presented one-sided insurance industry propaganda da during the process of rewriting Florida's insurance laws, unadorned by any guests speaking for consumer law. The hostess of First Coast Connect, Mellissa Ross, showed favoritism toward the insurance cartel, thrice hosting only insurance cartel flak MARK FRIEDLANDER.
Shame on Ms. Ross. (Ms. Ross now works for Jacksonville Mayor Donna Deegan. )
Shame on WJCT.
Truly cringeworthy, WJCT.
Hoping that new new WJCT First Coast Connect host Al Letson. does investigative reporting on this. No more PR stunts. please. Your listeners expect integrity.
