On yesterday's Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace spoke with White House senior advisor David Plouffe. Wallace twice referred to the Affordable Care Act as "Obamacare."
At about eight minutes into the interview, Wallace said, ""The Supreme Court holds three days of hearings on Obamacare, starting tomorrow. According to a recent poll, 67% of Americans think that the court should strike down the entire law or at least the individual mandate. Question: two years after it was passed, why is Obamacare still so unpopular?"
What kind of supposedly objective host calls the Act Obamacare?
Fox News’ “opinion” heads have been using “Obamacare” as a negative term. We’re taking it away from them. The White House asked people to fill in the blank and tweet: “I love ”http://twitter.com/search?q=%23Obamacare" title=“#Obamacare” class=“tweet-url hashtag”>#Obamacare because…"
But the term has NO place in an objective news broadcast from right or left.
