Politico's Kyle Cheney Swallows Obama Fiction on When It Figured Out C

January 17th, 2014 7:36 AM
It's hard to imagine how the Politico's Kyle Cheney could have written up his Thursday story about the government's dissatisfaction with soon to be (but not yet) former prime HealthCare.gov contractor CGI with a straight face.

The following sentence appeared in a writeup on the ongoing failure known as HealthCare.gov by Politico reporters Kyle Cheney, Jason Millman and Jennifer Haberkorn: "President Barack Obama has gotten surprisingly few questions about the enrollment problems as the country — and Republican critics of the health law — focused on the government shutdown and the debt ceiling battle."

Two People Who 'Asked To Be Removed' From Politico Story About OFA Hel

August 6th, 2013 6:22 PM
If there was a daily prize for "Propaganda Tool of the Day," Politico would have won it both yesterday and today. Yesterday, as Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters noted, the web site changed the title of an embarrassing report by Kyle Cheney on low attendance at an Organizing For America event from "Poor attendance at Obamacare event in Virginia" (number of volunteers who showed up: one) to "…
