IG­NOR­ING THE OB­VI­OUS

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

This bomb­shell news never re­ally got to ex­plode: NBC News’ se­nior in­ves­tiga­tive cor­re­spon­dent Lisa My­ers found buried in the 2010 Oba­macare reg­u­la­tions lan­guage pre­dict­ing “a rea­son­able range for the per­cent­age of in­di­vid­ual poli­cies that would ter­mi­nate is 40 per­cent to 67 per­cent.”

Wait, the White House al­ready knew folks would lose their insurance? Surely that’s worth much cov­er­age. But no. A Me­dia Re­search Center anal­y­sis re­veals that “this mas­sive, deliberate breach of trust” was given only 21 sec­onds of air­time on “NBC Nightly News,” with no fol­low-up. ABC and CBS com­pletely ig­nored the rev­e­la­tions.

“NBC News buried their own reporter to pro­tect Pres­i­dent Obama,” fumes Brent Bozell, founder of the con­ser­va­tive me­dia watch­dog. “This sends a clear mes­sage to the Amer­i­can peo­ple. As far as the lib­eral broad­cast net­works are con­cerned, when Barack Obama lies, it’s not news. What would Richard Nixon have given for a press corps this cor­rupt?”
