CNS Baselessly Portrays Health Care Waivers As Political Payback
Topic: has suddenly become desperate to portray temporary waivers to the new health care reform as payback to political supporters. Here are the headlines of three Jan. 31 articles by Fred Lucas:

Of course, Lucas has no proof of any such payback -- all he's doing is embracing the correlation-equals-causation fallacy. Lucas largely ignores the fact that most waivers have gone to businesses, at least some of which, such as restaurants, actually opposed health care reform.

Lucas also lays bare his right-wing, anti-Obama agenda by highlighting in one article how 'Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) recently told he believed a congressional investigation will show the waivers were politicized."

In other words, Lucas is serving as a Republican public relations agent. Is that really the role a self-proclaimed reporter should be taking?
