According to a tally by The American Mirror's Kyle Olson, Barack Obama's campaign speech Monday for Nevada Senate Democratic candidate Jacky Rosen referred to himself 92 times in 38 minutes -- or an average self-allusion every 24.7 seconds. When he wasn't "I"-ing, the former narcissist-in-chief was lying.
Eager to promote the issues that Democrats want to talk about ahead of the midterm elections, on Tuesday, NBC’s Today show devoted a full report to the topic of health care. The story focused on boosting ObamaCare and hammering Republicans for voting to repeal the policy.
On Sunday's MSNBC Live, longtime journalist and liberal MSNBC contributor Jonathan Alter proclaimed that "you can kiss democracy goodbye" if Republicans retain control of the House of Representatives as he also complained that the press are not being tough enough on President Donald Trump as he has given the media more access before the midterm elections.
Washington Post "Fact Checker" Glenn Kessler broke out the swagger on Wednesday, beginning his latest article: "President Trump wrote an opinion article for USA Today on Oct. 10 regarding proposals to expand Medicare to all Americans — known as Medicare-for-All — in which almost every sentence contained a misleading statement or a falsehood." But some of these are predictions, not facts. Does Kessler have a crystal ball in his office? This is just crystal bull.
An absolute classic out of the Dem/MSM playbook. Take a huge, expensive, inefficient, government program. Find someone with a heartwrenching story who is helped by it. Highlight that story as if it represents the essence of the program in question. Bonus points if you can get someone to get choked up on camera. And thus it was that today's Morning Joe featured a segment in which NBC reporter Morgan Radford traveled to Ohio ahead of President Trump's rally there. She found Colleen, a mother whose daughter had developed cancer at age seven, who said that "it was life-changing, what the ACA [Obamacare] did for us."
In the season three premiere of Bull on CBS, Dr. Jason Bull (Michael Weatherly) returns to work following a heart attack, and brings along a not-so-fun case for his team.

And, to the team’s shock and chagrin, they’re representing the insurance company!

Alex Henderson is ashamed to be an American because we don’t share his fascination with rail transportation. Oh, our healthcare is bad. And lots of other things. He wrote them all down in an article for Alternet.
On Wednesday's CBS Evening News, in a report on Louisiana's budget battle which the piece suggested could "kill people" with cuts to Medicaid, correspondent David Begnaud seemed to think it was only important to identify the party affiliation of the Republican state legislators involved, even though the governor whom he also spoke with, John Bel Edwards, is a Democrat.
WASHINGTON — Milton Friedman was not only a brilliant economist — a Nobel laureate, in fact — he was also a gifted writer. In his 1962 book "Capitalism and Freedom," he presciently explained how health care costs were going to leap out of control over the next decades. Sure enough, they did. They multiplied from roughly $1 of every $20 being spent on health care in the 1950s to roughly $1 of every $5 being spent on health care today.
