NYT: With Failed Vote, 'Far Right' Lands 'Punch...to Their Own Face'

March 25th, 2017 4:20 PM
The New York Times engaged in some serious labeling overload (and a bit of post-mortem grave-dancing over the House Freedom Caucus) in the run-up and aftermath of the failure of Republicans in Congress to pass a bill repealing and replacing Obamacare. A nasty online headline no doubt brought chortles to the smug liberals who read the Times: “Republicans Land a Punch on Health Care, to Their…

Jennifer Steinhauer’s Wednesday front-page story was headlined: “…
