Foxnews.com Headline Is A Partisan Twofer Against Health Care Reform

Reported by Ellen - August 19, 2009 -

A Foxnews.com headline yesterday (8/18/09) said, “Obama administration appears caught between a rock – Americans opposed to government-run health care – and a hard place, liberal Dems who threaten to kill health reform without ‘public option.’” In the first place, it’s a complete distortion to present the public option as “government-run health care.” The public option is a government-run health insurance program. Secondly, the headline sets up a false dichotomy in suggesting that only “liberal Dems” support a public option for health insurance whereas “Americans” oppose it. In fact, numerous polls indicate the majority of Americans support a public option. Screen grab after the jump. (H/T reader C J)
