CBS This Morning was the sole Big Three morning newscast on Thursday to report that delivery company UPS was cutting health insurance to 15,000 spouses of employees due to the rising costs related to ObamaCare. ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's Today both failed to cover this latest development concerning the controversial law. [audio available here; video below the jump]
The CBS program devoted a news brief and a two-and-a-half minute segment to UPS being "one of the first major companies to directly blame ObamaCare for changes in coverage." When host Gayle King wondered if the company's move was "a bad thing to do", analyst Mellody Hobson actually replied that "it's actually not, because, at the end of the day, the spouse will be covered."
