As a vote on the health care bill looms large, to occur on Sunday, news sources are playing different tunes. Take a look at this sampling of headlines from today’s news:
“Most Americans see healthcare benefiting the needy” (Reuters)
“State of health care debate: Pundits attack 11-year-old” (McClatchy)
“Obama legacy at stake as health vote looms” (AFP)
Interesting…it’s almost as if they are taking a side here. Just for your information, the poll released today is contradicted by every Rasmussen poll done in the last month.
The pundits who are “attacking” the 11-year-old boy have actually only been guilty of attacking the use of that story by politicians as a fallacious appeal to pity. They have pointed out, accurately, that the boy’s mother was not denied treatment simply because she was uninsured.
Talk about circling the wagons!
