Brave New PAC and Democracy for America

"Medical Records"
30 sec. TV ad run Sept
. 25 2008 on cable.


[Music, stopwatch ticking] Text on screen: John McCain is 72 years old and has had cancer 4 times.

Michael D. Fratkin, MD: The relevance of knowing the details of his course with melanoma are very important.

Another bout of cancer for John McCain while he's President of the United States would profoundly impact his capacity to lead.

Noah Craft MD, PhD: Melanoma's the deadliest of skin cancers and the chances of survival if you have melanoma spread through your body are very, very slim.

Text on screen: Why won't John McCain release his Medical Records?

Male Announcer: Brave New PAC and Democracy for America are responsible for the content of this advertising.

Notes: According to news reports MSNBC ran the ad briefly, then pulled it after criticism, and CNN refused to run it.  Brave New PAC encouraged people to urge "PBS' Jim Lehrer to ask McCain about his health records during Friday's debate."
