Just caught CNN at the gym and noticed that in the crawl at the bottom of the screen, the “news network” reported that Wendy Davis announced she was running for Texas Governor. In the crawl, they reminded us that Miss Davis had filibustered the state’s “controversial” abortion bill.
Do wonder if when another Texas politician filibustered recently to express his opposition to Obamacare if the network dubbed that unpopular program as “controversial.”
And I would dare say a greater percentage of Americans oppose Obamacare than Texans who oppose the bill to which Miss Davis objected.
FROM THE COMMENTS: rtm answers the title question in the affirmative.
Yes, CNN has called Obamacare controversial:
“With so many politicians fighting over this controversial legislation, the details about how to sign up may have gotten a little lost.”
But do wonder if the network ever did so in the crawl?
