The Mis-Informant

Jack Black Takes on Liars for Hire

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the health insurance industry and a slew of new front groups that refuse to reveal their funding sources (like the 60 Plus Association and Karl Rove’s American Crossroads), have been pouring millions of dollars into advertising campaigns that present false information about health reform, financial reform and the economy. The pro-reform group Health Care for America Now is fighting back with a funny video series called “The Mis-Informant,” starring Jack Black as Nathan Spewman, a professional propagandist who poses as an overgrown kid with a hormone problem who infiltrates an elementary school to convince kids Obama wants to kill their grandparents. The video is part of a public education campaign to make people aware of how big businesses are spreading ridiculous lies for corporate gain.
