About those TV spots I

Now that respected former KDKA-TV anchor Patrice King Brown has become the official apologist in the UPMC Health System commercials, one obvious question arises. Since UPMC has publicly stated that it has no employees, who pays Ms. Brown's salary for her commercial advocacy of the UPMC Health System?

The monies being spent by both UPMC and West Penn Allegheny health systems for a kindergarten-style schoolyard brawl in the media could surely be better spent in health-care applications.

Neither health system needs to worry very much about the cost of its public squabbles because both organizations are so-called “nonprofits” having limited accountability and tax liabilities.
