People who watch the network news programs or read the two primary liberal newspapers were left in the dark about Jonathan Gruber and his comments about how they had to lie to keep the stupid people on their side in the Obamacare debate. Howard Kurtz remarks in Media blackout shields ObamaCare architect who bet on public stupidity:
And yet there hasn’t been a mention on the network evening newscasts. CNN’s Jake Tapper played a clip once and that was about it. Nothing in the Washington Post but for a couple of online items. Not a word in the New York Times, which in 2012 ran a puffy profile of Gruber (“It is his research that convinced the Obama administration that health care reform could not work without requiring everyone to buy insurance”).
This is utterly inexplicable, except as a matter of bias. No matter what you think of ObamaCare, on what planet is this not news? Maybe on that comet where the spaceship just landed.
Oh, THAT liberal media. By electing not to expose their readers/viewers to this they're basically agreeing with Gruber that the ends justified the means.
By the way, remember all the hoopla about "Bush lied" because he relied on faulty intelligence? Well, if network bigwigs didn't have double standards they would have no standards at all.
