"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Reporters Trained by Pro-ObamaCare Team on How to Report Rollout Problems

"The Light-bringer bids you to report on ObamaCare 'correctly.'"

Yeah, we're well on the way toward the Ministry of Truth...

From The Washington Examiner piece by Joel Gehrke (h/t Instapundit):

Reporters with the Society of American Business Editors and Writers received "training" on how to cover Obamacare's rollout from a policy expert who works with President Obama's former health information technology adviser. 
The Commonwealth Fund's Sara Collins claimed during the training that healthcare.gov's chronic dysfunctionality does not signify "deeper issues" with the law. 
"I don't think it signifies deeper problems, I think it is a website issue," Collins told SABEW during the Oct. 28 training seminar. 
Her optimistic take on the law's difficulties is unsurprising since she works for an organization led by David Blumenthal, who was President Obama's national coordinator for health information technology from 2009 to 2011.  
What is surprising is that an organization claiming to represent professional journalists would endorse "training" delivered by advocates for the program they are covering, which would violate SABEW's code of ethics.

Obama and his Democrats are scrambling and desperate. Reinforcing their significant influence over the mainstream media is right from the playbook. Unfortunately economic reality just isn't cooperating with them.
