News & Record: "Cone Health has $2.2 billion impact on economy" Is Cone Health about to ask Greensboro and/or Guilford County for taxpayer money?

The world is ruled
only by consideration of advantages.

Friedrich von Schiller

"Not only does Cone Health provide much of the community’s healthcare,
but it also is the area’s largest private employer...

If what some think isn’t what you do, and what ‘they’ say sounds relatively better,
could it be easier to believe what ‘they’ think, even if it might not be true?

...the health system employs more than 6 percent of the region’s workforce
and has an economic impact worth more than $2.2 billion.

Our dominant media are ultimately accountable only to corporate boards

The community will continue to see continued investment from Cone, said Tim Rice,
president and chief executive officer of Cone Health,
as workers turned dirt outside

which broke ground today. “Just look for the cranes,” Rice said.

Statements by high officials are practically always misleading,
when they are designed to bolster a falling market.

The new emergency department,
which is expected to double existing beds when it opens next fall,
is among $250 million in current Cone Health construction projects..."


Can thought be controlled by repeating positive messages,
while underreporting negative,
and vice versa?

Could a larger percentage of what you think you think,
be what some frequently suggest you think you think?

Is it hard to get entrenched economic and political leadership to understand,
if relative legitimacy depends on not understanding?

Why are citizen reporters who bypass compensated journalists
to report on some of what most mainstream media won’t,
often criticized by some well-established pundits?
