Accuracy in Media

Late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel again wandered into the political arena this week, after months of railing against the Republican Party over tax reform and health care reform.

This time, Kimmel focused on health insurance funding known as CHIP, or the Children’s Health Insurance Plan.

Kimmel criticized Republican politicians for not funding children’s insurance, without acknowledging that CHIP was created by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R.-Utah). Hatch reiterated he will get funding passed for the program.

The late-night television host also overlooked how Congress and the Trump administration are funding the program until a permanent spending bill is passed.
