Twisting the story

To fit your preconceptions.

Should we let him die? Watch.

What happened is NOT what is stated in the headline, nor, really what is stated in the text.

Seems that an adult making a choice not to get health insurance (and facing the consequences) is viewed differently by the Tea Party folks vs the reporter.

While this might well play well with the (obviously liberal) reporters friends and drinking buddies, it doesn’t play well with anyone with the thought processes and cognitive abilities of a rutabaga.

Watch the video. See where anyone cheers at the thought of “letting him die”. (actually, I think that if he makes the choice to spend his money for other things besides  health insurance he deserves whatever he gets). It is not the responsibility of the society in which he lives to pay for him when he won’t pay for himself.

Interesting how the spin is played though.
