2009

On January 6, 2009, CNN announced that Gupta had been considered for the position of Surgeon General by President Barack Obama.

Others, such as liberal commentator Jane Hamsher, defended the appointment, noting that Gupta’s responsibilities as a surgeon general would be not that different from those of his CNN position, and that Gupta’s media presence would make him ideal for the position. From the medical community, Donna Wright, of Creative Health Care Management, a regular commentator on medicine and politics, also defended the appointment on the grounds of his media presence, combined with his medical qualifications, which she viewed as an ideal combination for the post of surgeon general. Likewise, Fred Sanfilippo, executive vice president for health affairs at Emory University, supported Gupta’s nomination by issuing a press release saying: “He has the character, training, intelligence and communications skills needed to help the United States improve its health and health care delivery systems in the next Administration.” The American Council on Exercise, listed by PR Newswire as “America’s leading authority on fitness and one of the largest fitness certification, education and training organizations in the world”, endorsed the nomination of Gupta “because of his passion for inspiring Americans to lead healthier, more active lives”. The ACE sent a letter of support to senator Edward M. Kennedy. Former surgeon general Joycelyn Elders also supported Gupta’s nomination, saying: “He has enough well-trained, well-qualified public health people to teach him the things he needs to do the job.” In March 2009 Gupta withdrew his name from consideration for the post, citing his family and his career.

In it, they apologized for an error in their on-air report, having stated that in the film Moore reported Cuba spends $25 per person for health care when the film actually gave that number as $251. CNN attributed this to a transcription error. CNN defended the rest of Gupta’s report responding point-by-point to Moore’s response, contending that comparison of data from different sources in different years was in effect cherry picking results, at the cost of statistical accuracy.
