Health care policy and political reporters Elise Viebeck and Sarah Kliff join us on "Reliable Sources" to discuss.

    media continues to be in the tank for obamacare dispite this....LIES LIES LIES AND MORE LIES...it's working if you like losing your doctor. period. it's working if you like losing your policy. period. it's working if you like not saving the $2500 per yr the president said you would save per family
    can i believe anything else coming out of this white house???
    as a life long democrat i suggest the obama administration and democratic senate scramble to grunt obamacare into the toliet and flush it like you would any unwanted feces. it's that bad. if they can not see this, they are in denial and doomed to being the minority party in the future. take care of the few that have no insurance and get out of the way for the rest. why are you screwing 90% to help the 10%??? no $2500 dollar savings for anyone i know. most are double triple increases, unless you are poor and on medicaid that gives substandard care. time to wake up my fellow democrats......time to wake up.

    Media coverage has, unfortunately, been terribly slanted in favor of fake horror stories which almost without exception have shown to be either completely fabricated or highly misleading. Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of this biased reporting is that not only Fox News and other right wing media have been pushing this propaganda but even the major networks have been unable to resist the lure of perceived doom. Apparently it is perceived to be a better sell than upbeat reports. However, one would think that these networks would take their professional responsibilities a bit more seriously. The public deserves better.
