ed schultz media wants obamacare to fail

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz has had it with all the negative press on the Obamacare rollout, and has determined that the real problem is the mainstream media and their desire to see Obamacare fail:

The mainstream media, I believe, wants Obamacare to fail. They look for every negative number they could find. They’re afraid to do a positive story because they’re afraid that somebody might not watch. The media is just cherry-picking the bad facts that are out there, repeating them over and over again. And, in many cases, they’re making stuff up.

What? The mainstream media, which have been in the tank for the President since he won election in 2008, are now suddenly against Obama’s signature legislative achievement, to the point they want it to fail? While I’m no fan of the mainstream media, Schultz is wrong to blame them for the negative news. That blame falls squarely on the shoulders of the Obama administration, which has totally botched the rollout of Obamacare. Schultz knows who ‘s really to blame, but as a far-left liberal he just can’t bring himself to admit that Obama’s socialized healthcare law is a failure. The rollout is simply the canary in coal mine. The real disaster is Obamacare itself.
