Here’s the headline in the Palm Beach Post that lays out the poll- ‘Poll: Most Americans don’t want health reform defunded’
Looks like this is a case of a poll reflecting how it’s question is worded. The question has the caveat about methodology of how to defund the process. Reword the question as to whether Americans approve of Obamacare as a job killer and see what results you get.
That and how more irresponsible could a story be than to report of a special interest group’s poll? It would be as bad as presenting as journalism a story about a poll against Obamacare by the Catholic Church, who has filed suit against the administration for, what it feels, is a Federal healthcare system that represents blasphemy.
Very important to notice that the writer is a founder of The Moscow Times and that a list of her stories shows very clearly her political leanings. Pity responsible journalism has been replaced by political activism.
Here’s the story:
‘Poll: Most Americans don’t want health reform defunded –
While many Americans continue to view health reform as a glass half-empty, they don’t want Congress to shatter it, a poll released by the Kaiser Family Foundation today finds.
The poll of 1,503 adults found 42 percent expressing an unfavorable view of the Obama administration’s health law.’
