Call to NBC on September 2, 2013 at 3:00 Requesting Apology

Here is Kathy Powers call to NBC on September 2, 2013 at 3:00,:

Hello, my name is Kathy Powers. It has been a month since Brian Williams and NBC Nightly News insulted millions of Americans saying that “arguably the face of mental illness” is Ariel Castro. In an effort to roll back the stigma rudely amplified in your newscast and editing, I want a public apology and a news story about the “Faces of Recovery” showing positive role-models of individuals living with mental illness.

 I also respond to the one-sided segment about ECT that “Today” ran on August 20, 2013. I demand that NBC reflect that ECT providers should tell potential recipients about the risk of the disabling effects of ECT treatment, including permanent memory loss and cognitive deficits, so that they can make an informed choice.

 Thank you.
