An­other week, an­other ex­am­ple of bi­ased news me­dia. A new 10-month study by the con­ser­va­tive watch­dog News­ dis­cov­ered that the three ma­jor broad­cast net­works vir­tu­ally ig­nored the strug­gles of Oba­macare and its ba­sic in­fra­struc­ture for quite some time.

“De­spite sky­rock­et­ing pre­mi­ums, ma­jor in­sur­ance com­pa­nies back­ing out, and one state ex­change af­ter an­other fail­ing, in all of 2016, the evening news broad­casts of ABC, CBS and NBC have only de­voted 10 min­utes and 21 sec­onds com­bined to Oba­macare fail­ures. Un­til for­mer Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton called the Af­ford­able Care Act ‘this crazy sys­tem’ on Oc­to­ber 3, ABC and NBC hadn’t cov­ered any Oba­macare news in 2016 at all,” ob­serves an­a­lyst Mike Cian­della. “For this study, we looked for any men­tion or ref­er­ence of Oba­macare, even if it didn’t have to do with pol­icy.” guid­ing our coun­try go­ing for­ward. Don­ald Trump and Mike Pence sup­port poli­cies that are needed to res­tore Amer­ica’s great­ness, while Clin­ton-Kaine’s poli­cies will ac­cel­er­ate Amer­ica’s de­cline,” the or­ga­ni­za­tion notes.
