CBS Gives Obama a Helping Hand


Katie Couric to the Rescue !!!!!
Are you guys ready for some Earth-shattering information? Well, here we go.... The mainstream media has a bias towards the Democrats. There you go. How I don't get paid to give you guys this insight is still beyond me.....
Of course, we all know this. If you want to get a decent side of the right's opinion, you watch Fox News, if you want the left side, you watch the other networks. Most of the time, they do it in a cloudy manner - it's a bit subliminal. Then there are days like yesterday. If you have any doubt that Barack Obama's Health Care bill is in trouble, you need look no further than the hack job Katie Couric had to start yesterday's show......
For about seven minutes, all they talked about was health care... First, they went to a free health care expo in Los Angeles, where thousands came for help with different ailments - many of them vision and dental related, which the new Health Care bill does not address. Then, they discussed End of Life care. They managed to identify it as where the most expense is used - no duh. But, they also managed to find a couple doctors who said that hospitals unnecessarily spend billions in the last year of a patients life every year. Now, I have no doubt that bills do get run up at the end of a patient's life, but it all seemed more an infomercial than a news broadcast straight out of the Obama Team's playbook.
Here is the part I'd like you to focus on a bit. The first clip was in California - the state that mirrors what Obama is trying to emulate the most. They are broke by $44 Billion this year, laying off thousands of state employees becuase they can't pay for all of the government bureaucracy that they've created. The clip is actually more of an indictment of how it doesn't work , more than how it would work - but they don't show it to you in that light.....
The media has a lot of influence - just like a blog, only about 100 million times greater. Some of you might think Katie Couric is just the talking head, but she is also the News Director, just like Walter Cronkite was. Therefore, you can cast much of the blame on her - or credit, if you wish. I'm afraid that impartiality in the news is dead, but the solace you can take in it is that, as far as Health Care goes, Team Obama has a serious problem on their hands - and even their buddies in the MSM may not fix it for them....
