Obamacare: Continued

November 22, 2013

In a continuing story and a continuing theme on Obamacare on this blog, today I will examine the extended coverage of the Affordable Care Act amongst news organizations.

Today, CNN ran a story  detailing how the enrollment in Obamacare for Americans was being delayed until 2015. Republicans believe that this is because of the upcoming midterm elections in 2014 and the negative press which has surrounded the issue along with the fumbled start-up of the program by the Obama administration.

However, the White House denied this allegation. Many Republicans also believe that repealing Obamacare is the only way to fix at all.

What I found interesting about the coverage was that FOX News actually, instead of presenting a very informal story about the topic (like it did yesterday, when it compared Obamacare to Hurricane Katrina, and actually said that the healthcare issue was worse than the deadly hurricane) laid out its thoughts on what should really happen with Obamacare. FOX had an interview with Republican senator Ted Cruz who actually discusses what the Republican alternative to the healthcare act would be.

While the Republicans, and much of FOX News, seem to be in great opposition to Obamacare and anything related with the Affordable Care Act, FOX seems to be rather hit and miss with its coverage of the topic.

Today, however, FOX, along with CNN, seems to have relayed the issue accurately to its readers.
