Boston Globe Fails to Tell Story About President Obama's Horrible
In researching a post about President Barack Obama's scheduled Thursday night appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, I came across a brief article, Obama taking economic message to Leno, on Boston.com. While the text of the article was pretty straightforward, a Reuters photo (right) sandwiched between the headline and the body copy speaks volumes about the bias evident at the online home of the Boston Globe.
The specific bias to which I refer has to do with Boston.com's disturbing lack of coverage about the president’s plan to charge wounded military service members for treatment.
Since news about the veterans health care matter broke Monday evening, nothing about the president's controversial plan has appeared in the news sections at either Boston.com or the Boston Globe. In fact, the only mentions of the subject appear in a Boston.com reader forum (see DISGRACE:OBAMA CHARGES WOUNDED GIs TREATMENT) and in a post at the web site's Political Intelligence blog (see Veterans groups angry at Obama).
Juxtaposed against the blatant lack of coverage about this issue of critical importance to veterans is the aforementioned photo. It shows President Obama greeting Mahdee Abdul Sabir, a wheelchair-bound war veteran.
If the folks at Boston.com had been interested in President Obama's true disposition toward military veterans, they would have explained how Sabir will have to rely on his private insurance company to pay for the treatment of his service-connected disabilities and injuries if, that is, President Obama's plan is implemented.
