Biased Source: CNN Cited Liberal Think Tank in Article on Why ObamaCare Repeal is Bad

The Center for American Progress is a left-wing, liberal and progressive think tank which houses allies of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama. Yet, CNN felt it was wise to cite their anti-ObamaCare repeal research. How is CAP a neutral source in the fight over the future of ObamaCare?

CNN entitled the piece, “Think tank on GOP health bill: Coverage to plummet, cancer treatment costs to skyrocket [1],” and only said that the organization is “a DC-based progressive think tank.”

Sorry, CNN, but by not reporting the Democratic Party ties of some of their employees, such as CAP’s President Neera Tanden and her ties to the Clinton campaign [2], is dishonest reporting.
