Weekend Watchdog

Every Friday in our Weekend Watchdog feature, we post suggested questions for scheduled Sunday guests. You can add your own questions in the comment thread. We’ll also include contact information for the shows, so we can let them know what their viewers want asked.

Then on Monday, we’ll circle back and see if our questions were asked and answered. Let’s take back our media!

For former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (Fox News Sunday): One of the first things you did after leaving the mayor’s office was become a PR flack for the makers of Oxycontin, which was under fire for downplaying addiction risks.

Your meeting with the head of the Drug Enforcement Agency helped slow the agency’s investigation. You claimed the the company was committed to fighting addiction, but now company officials have pled guilty for misleading the public.

If flacking for an irresponsible drug company was one of your top priorities after serving as a mayor, how can people trust you’ll side with them over the drug lobby on issues such as having Medicare negotiate for lower prices and importing cheaper drugs from Canada?
