You know that the compliant media will gleefully report on someone whose claim to be hurt by Obamacare can be proven to be wrong or marginalized because they have other major baggage unrelated to the issue at hand. There are millions of people who are and will be hurt. You just cannot expect the mainstream media to search them out.

Media's job is to preserve democracy by being the public's ears and reporting in a unbiased, ideology-free manner. They fail miserably every single day.

Worse, people are so media-intimidated now that they blather and blubber out all sorts of conflicting statements until they don’t know where they are. They're scared to speak and scared not to speak. Professional journalists--of which there are currently very few--know there's more to fact finding/checking than shoving a microphone is someone’s face or playing ‘gotcha’ on a talk show.

Instead of journalists, we now have media terrorists.
