On Monday’s show the New York Times’ Mark Leibovich talked about Manhattan-Beltway media elites and Hillary, Chris Christie and Obamacare.
On Tuesday’s program, Dr. Tevi Troy laid out in great detail exactly what the media needs to be examining about the claims the president is making about Obamacare. (Troy’s new Commentary Magazine piece on Obamacare is here.)
The transcripts of both the Leibovich and Troy interviews will be posted here soon. The answer to the problem Leibovich identified of Beltway media “group think” is outlined in Troy’s answers to my interview questions and in his article. Wait and see if many (or any) MSMer start to scrutinize the president’s claims or seek serious metrics of performance for the program he continues to extol even as it fails in spectacular fashion to the great harm of millions of Americans. Look especially for any MSMer recounting what the president promised in 2009 and again in 2012 and what is in fact happening in 2013-2014.
