CNS Still Whitewashing Lewin Group

A Sept. 9 article by Fred Lucas asserting that several claims President Obama has made about health care reform "have been refuted by non-partisan sources" references a study by "the Lewin Group, a private health care analysis firm claiming that "119.1 million Americans would leave private plans for the public option."

In fact, as we've noted, the Lewin Group is somehwat less than nonpartisan -- it's owned by a health insurer, UnitedHealth Group, which has a stake in not wanting people to switch from private insurance.

A Sept. 10 article by Susan Jones reported that "he Peter G. Peterson Foundation released a study which found that in its second decade, H.R. 3200 would increase federal deficits by more than $1 trillion," but made no mention whatsoever that the study was conducted by the Lewin Group.

This is not the first time CNS has tried to whitewash the Lewin Group's background.
