Wow. If true, it's another unbelievable, yet at the same time entirely predictable, report from the good folks at TalkingPointsMemo.com . The corporate traditional media took up every shriek of "death panels," and every prognostication of Inevitable DOOOOOOM as though it were literal, scientific fact.
TV Networks Denied Obama Airtime To Tout Obamacare Enrollment
Dylan Scott – April 3, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT
The White House reportedly wanted to put President Barack Obama on primetime television Tuesday to tout Obamacare's 7 million enrollees -- but network TV officials denied him the airtime.
BuzzFeed had the scoop, citing three sources with knowledge of the request. Details of the request are unclear from the report, but it appears that the White House was seeking primetime space on broadcast TV networks.
The White House did not comment directly to BuzzFeed.
Words fail. It's just absolutely infuriating.
The ACA / Obamacare law - for all its flaws - is doing what all these jokers confidently predicted it wouldn't . . . working the way it was supposed to. A month ago they were saying it would never make it to 6 million, now it appears to have MET THE CBO PROJECTION of 7 MILLION.
You think CNN or ABC will report on it when rates start falling next fall? -and large swaths of the insured start getting CHECKS CUT to them?
I mean let's get this straight: death panels are a story. Law working and health care rates stabilizing? - Not a story.
