Meeting the Press, Facing the Nation and Hoodwinking the Media - by Neil GablerQuicklink submitted By Susan Lee Schwartz Permalink
"This is how the media debate on health care begins: with dueling talking heads on Sunday morning. What it demonstrates is that if we are going to have a serious conversation, the media better be up to the task. They need to know their stuff. They need to be willing to challenge obviously false assertions. They need to correct the spin. Dickerson seems to think doing so would be a violation of objectivity, which is the standard operating procedure of television news. Don’t talk back. Chuck Todd (Meet The Press)wasn’t going to play nice. That is a beginning. What Todd did do, powerfully, was go to the data. He found that the biggest losers — that is, the communities that would lose most from the Obamacare repeal — were those that voted for Trump-- who have living ta big surprise coming when they find they can’t afford insurance."
