....This is sort of the same deal as the folks Hannity had on his show: In each case, a bit of fact-checking found that most hadn't even bothered to do their own homework....

And remember that these people were hand picked by Hannity. Mike Huckabees "horror story" also turned out to be completely false. His "victim" turned out to be eligible for Medicaid but she just didn't want to take it. Too proud or something.

The plural of anecdote isn't data, to use a cliche. Most of the media is almost as lazy and incompetent as FOX "News". Probably safe to assume that most of these horror stories are either partly or completely untrue.
