Journalism vs Health Insurance Reform

A journalist did his job today.

Dylan Ratigan of MSNBC Morning Meeting had an honest debate with Betsy McCaughey the former Lt Governor of New York and Representative Anthony Weiner (D) also of NY.

Ms. McCaughey was actually the first one to coin the phrase “death panels” she has been on Fox News and other programs pushing her version of the Health Insurance Reform Bills currently sitting in committee. She was on the Morning Meeting to continue her routine. Dylan Ratigan would have none of it, he was insistent on Ms. McCaughey answering his questions on how to control costs. While she wanted to discuss Medicare, keep it in its current form and also propagate what she thought was in the bills. A journalist and politician finally called her on it and said: answer the question. YES!!!!
