You wanna know why we think the media is biased?

November 21, 2012

House Speaker John Boehner wrote a column about why House Republicans still want to repeal Obamacare. I dunno how widely the column ran – I saw it on Cincinatti.com, via Memeorandum.

I also don’t know what editor wrote this headline:

House GOP is angling to repeal health care

Health care. Republicans are trying to repeal… health care! You won’t be able to get health care if the Republicans get their way!

Biased? Maybe. If not, then ignorant. Nobody’s trying to repeal health care, you idiots. They’re trying to repeal an incredibly long, confusing, complicated law that nobody completely understands and that will require thousands of pages of bureaucratic rules that confer great authority on those bureaucratic offices to enact policies that don’t do anything about prices except through bureaucratic fiat and worsening a looming physician shortage, which will make health care even harder to come by.

Republicans aren’t trying to “repeal” health care – they’re trying to give it its own health care!

Can a college-educated and experienced editor not see the factual bias in that headline?
