Daily Caller: Washington Post and CBS receiving money from Obamacare slush fundTopics: Follies of the Mainstream Media, Political News and commentaries
From the Daily Caller:
Two mainstream news organizations are receiving hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars from Obamacare's Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) -- a $5 billion grant program that's doling out cash to companies, states and labor unions in what the Obama administration considers an effort to pay for health insurance for early retirees. The Washington Post Company raked in $573,217 in taxpayer subsidies and CBS Corporation secured $722,388 worth of Americans' money.As is suggested in the piece, getting taxpayers' money from Obamacare is one thing, but in all of their related reporting shouldn't they be disclosing that they are "subsidiaries of the Obama Administration"? After all, given their obvious pro-Obamacare bias, their readers should at least be advised that besides their ideological bent ... they also have a financial incentive for slanting the news.
