Ever wonder what a lap dog media looks like? Wonder no more
Fox Business Network anchor Melissa Francis said she was “silenced” by CNBC when management told her she was “disrespecting the office of the president” by reporting about Obamacare.
Francis highlighted Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s comments about the “stupidity” of American voters and the administration intentionally misleading the public about what’s in the law and said in her experience, some of the media helped to hide the truth about the law.
So what did she have to say that got her in trouble?
“I said on the air that you couldn’t add millions of people to the system and force insurance companies to cover their pre-existing conditions without raising the price on everyone else,” Francis said. “I pointed out that it couldn’t possibly be true that if you like your plan, you can keep it. That was a lie. And in facts, millions of people had their plans canceled.”
Francis said she was called into a meeting with CNBC management (she would not specify names) and told she was “disrespecting the office of the president.”
Of course many of us “dumb Conservatives” knew all of this too but the media helped silence us all didn’t they? By not reporting the truth, they helped further Obama Care and helped Statists like Gruber.
