Let me guess...

At MSNBC, Steve Benen sums it up, and asks a question:
So let me get this straight. Several major news outlets told the public last week that Dianne Barrette is an example of an American consumer poised to lose big as a result of the Affordable Care Act. This Florida woman, we were told, is the quintessential example of someone disappointed by “Obamacare” and its effects on her personally.

And now that she’s received some additional information – details that weren’t included in last week’s coverage of her situation – this alleged victim of the law is starting to realize that maybe the Affordable Care Act is going to work in her favor after all.

So here’s my next question: will those same shows that presented Barrette as a victim last week tell the rest of the story, or will they move on to other folks who reinforce a pre-determined narrative?
Oh! Oh! I know! Pick me! Pick me!...

Did you see this?

"A failure to 'ask the questions' -- Why didn't NBC, Fox News or CBS 2 examine Deborah Cavallaro's insurance cancellation story before they aired it—like the LA Times did?":
