Networks Ignore GAO's Study on ObamaCare Accepting Fake Applications
July 23rd, 2014 10:02 PM
The Big Three networks' morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the Government Accountability Office's investigation of ObamaCare's sign-up process that uncovered that fraudulent documents were able to procure federal health plans and subsidies. On Wednesday, Amy Goldstein of the Washington Post reported that "undercover GAO investigators tried to obtain health plans…
WaPo's Report on Obamacare's Subsidy Mess Gets Almost No Other Establi
May 24th, 2014 12:51 AM
The press continues its disinterested fiddling while the royal mess known as Obamacare burns through money and exhausts the patience of those attempting any kind of oversight.
One of the more obvious examples of this is how the Washington Post's May 17 story on errors in calculating Obamacare subsidies has gone absolutely nowhere. About one-third of the 20 results returned in a Google…
WashPost Still Spraying Heavy Perfume, Calling Obamacare A 'Signature
March 31st, 2014 8:40 AM
It’s the bland leading the bland as Obamacare enrollment (sort of) ends. The front page of Monday’s Washington Post carries the headline “New fronts in health battle: Challenges after sign-up milestone.” (Yawn.) The pull quote inside on A-2 is “The unresolved issues mean it is far too soon to know how President Obama’s signature domestic achievement will turn…
WashPost, NYT Uncritically Hail ObamaCare Delay, Omit Sebelius's Pledg
March 26th, 2014 4:28 PM
"More time for health sign-up" cheered the Washington Post front-page headline for Amy Goldstein's March 26 story on the administration's latest ObamaCare delay, this time for the individual mandate which requires Americans to be insured so as to avoid paying a "tax" penalty. In an amazing dereliction of her journalistic duty, Goldstein utterly failed to mention that…
WashPost Deploys Selective Quotation to Distort Key GOP Criticism of O
March 5th, 2014 5:00 PM
The Obama administration is preparing to put in place yet another delay in ObamaCare, forestalling a wave of insurance policy cancelations that are mandated by law in the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In doing so, some of the negative repercussions of ObamaCare will be delayed until well after the November 2014 midterm election.
The political journalists at the Washington Post are no fools, they…
WSJ, NYTimes, USA Today All Note ObamaCare Signups Mostly Older, Sicke
January 13th, 2014 6:35 PM
The Obama administration today revealed that more than half of the sign-ups for ObamaCare are aged 45 and older, hardly the sort of young, healthy insurance pool the White House was hoping for.
On their websites, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and New York Times all focused on the older/sicker skew of the Healthcare.gov signups. The Washington Post, however, tried to accentuate the…
WaPo, Which Claims to Have Discovered It, Says Obama Admin 'Quietly De
December 27th, 2013 3:18 PM
With a headline at a Washington Post story by Amy Goldstein and Juliet Eilperin reading "Obama administration quietly extends health-care enrollment deadline by a day," you would think that the administration issued some kind of press release without comment — or at least, as was the case with its announcement waiving the individual mandate for those who had individual policies…
Stenographers to Power: WashPost Prematurely Proclaimed 'Health Web Si
December 1st, 2013 12:41 PM
Saturday’s Washington Post served up the Kool-Aid with this Obamacare headline on the front page: “Health Web site to meet deadline: Officials set to announce fixes.” The entire story by Juliet Eilperin and Amy Goldstein is unanimously just Obama and his tech-helpers. There are no launch critics anywhere to be found.
“As of Friday night, federal officials and…
WaPo's Goldstein Suggests Insurance Industry Ideologically Conservativ
December 15th, 2010 4:29 PM
In an otherwise decent article in today's Washington Post, staffer Amy Goldstein suggested that the U.S. health insurance industry is ideologically conservative despite its support for the controversial and unconstitutional "individual mandate" provision of ObamaCare.
The relevant portion is found midway through her page A3 article, "Mandatory coverage moves to forefront of…
Amazing: WaPo Fails to Publish Own Poll on ObamaCare's Lowest Populari
December 14th, 2010 1:55 PM
A new ABC-Washington Post poll found ObamaCare sunk to its lowest popularity yet: 52 percent opposed, and only 43 percent in favor. ABC mentioned the poll without fanfare at the end of a Jake Tapper report on Monday’s World News, and Tapper added this was the health law's "lowest level of popularity ever." But Tuesday’s Washington Post reported not one sentence on the…
