WND Repeats McCaughey's False Claims
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A July 22 WorldNetDaily article by Bob Unruh uncritically repeats claims by anti-health care reform activist Betsy McCaughey, made on a radio show, that the House health care reform bill "would make it mandatory absolutely that every five years people in Medicare have a required counseling session" about end-of-life care, in which they will be told "to do what's in society's best interests, and cut your life short."

In fact, as Media Matters details, not only is such counseling not mandatory, numerous medical organizations have endorsed such counseling.
