Just make it up -- what to do when you have no evidence for your case
The Intelligencer on Obamacare
Today's attack on Obamacare by the Wheeling "newspapers" begins:
Mark this one down in your amazing-but-true book: Liberals in Congress admit they made a mistake on Obamacare.
With an introductory sentence like that you would expect to read the names of some of these liberals and then why they now believe that they made a mistake. Of course this is an Intelligencer editorial which means that evidence is seldom, if ever, required for any assertion. And that's what we get: no names, no reasons, just assertions.
I find it interesting that our "newspapers" have not commented upon what they think should happen if the Supreme Court cripples Obamacare even though they have constantly attacked it and consistently called for its repeal. If that were to happen, the system would likely collapse and 150,000+ West Virginians would once again be without health care. A number of these 150,000 probably serve a valuable function for the Ogden papers as troops in the "war on coal" and the "war on West Virginia" but that doesn't mean that they shouldn't be paying their own way -- at least as the Ogden papers see it. I have a hunch that if that happens, it will be (like everything else) all Obama's fault.
