Anyone out there who still doesn't believe or won't admit that the establishment press is hopelessly biased in favor of the left, particularly the Obama administration, needs to have the establishment press's virtual failure to cover the Jessica Sanford story rubbed in their faces.
Ms. Sanford is the unfortunate victim of deception by Washington state's Obamacare exchange. When it was thought that she would get a significant Obamacare subsidy and a net monthly premium of $169, President Obama touted her story based on a letter she wrote to him in a Rose Garden speech. Ms. Sanford has since learned that the state exchange seriously erred, and that she will get no subsidy at all. Because she can't afford to pay the monthly premium, which now appears to be in the neighborhood of $600 a month (her original premium was said to be $169, and her original subsidy was reported as $452), she will go without health insurance coverage next year and pay the Affordable Care Act's mandated fine.
Politico's Lucy McCalmont passed off a left wing professor as a "Dr. Seuss expert" in a Wednesday item about Senator Ted Cruz reading "Green Eggs and Ham" to his daughters during his marathon floor speech. McCalmont spent the bulk of her short article quoting from Occidental College's Peter Dreier slamming Cruz. The academician contended that Seuss would be "offended at almost everything that Ted Cruz stands for...he's a bully"
The writer identified Dreier as a "professor of politics", but failed to point out his far-left ideology, which includes serving as a consultant for ACORN and boosting a campaign to nominate former communist Pete Singer for the Nobel Peace Prize.
