Obamacare Navigators fall in the Forest the MSM doesn't hear it

A major job of the (Boston) Globe will be to deter­mine not only what news will be of inter­est to its read­ers, but what news should be of interest.

Less than 72 hours ago I posted on the new videos from Project Ver­i­tas along with my exclu­sive inter­view with Daniel Fran­cisco the Exec­u­tive Direc­tor show­ing Oba­macare shenani­gans in Texas

Well it didn’t take long for those caught on videos to become expend­able:

The Urban League of Greater Dal­las has report­edly fired one per­son and sus­pended three oth­ers after an under­cover video from James O’Keefe’s Project Ver­i­tas caught Oba­macare “nav­i­ga­tors” advis­ing a poten­tial appli­cant to “lie”and pro­vide false infor­ma­tion to get a lower pre­mium and more subsidies.

In a state­ment Tues­day, the Urban League said it “does not con­done, nor would we ever sanc­tion, mis­lead­ing the pub­lic or any indi­vid­ual who seeks our assis­tance about any issue, and par­tic­u­larly in this case, an issue as crit­i­cal as health care,” KDFW-​TV reports.

The local Dal­las Fort Worth Fox sta­tion filed a report. Watch the news report. It’s worth not­ing while the Feds aren’t talk­ing to the press it was DHS the rec­om­mended “de-​certifying” the nav­i­ga­tors in question.

We’ve seen the stan­dard response about “edited” video from the Urban League

The Urban League also called for the unedited video of the inci­dents to be released. It said the under­cover appli­cants were told the peo­ple they were speak­ing to were Navigators-​in-​training and “the full con­text of these com­ments is not reflected in the video.”

It’s inter­est­ing to see that the left IS learn­ing, for exam­ple they’re not accus­ing O’Keefe & com­pany of lying this time around.

What I find more inter­est­ing how­ever is, with Oba­macare being THE story in the news, how the MSM is han­dling the story of these videos, and the firing/​suspensions of these nav­i­ga­tors for the program.

Either none of these orga­ni­za­tion find a story of peo­ple fired for abuses involv­ing admin­is­tra­tion of oba­macare THE most talked about sub­ject in the coun­try today, news­wor­thy or appar­ently they’ve decided to go the full “Tree falling in the for­est” fig­ur­ing that with Bill Clin­ton et/​al dom­i­nat­ing the Oba­macare story if nobody hears about it on their net­works they won’t make a sound.

I would think such a story would imme­di­ately be rec­og­nized as news­wor­thy by any com­pe­tent edi­tor, but I don’t pay the bills at those news orga­ni­za­tions so if they choose not to cover the story its their pre­rog­a­tive but per­haps the word “news” should be removed from their let­ter­head for the sake of accuracy. .

Oh and in case you’re won­der­ing I searched the Boston Globe for the phrase “project ver­i­tas” over the last 30 days as well

It’s Thurs­day and the first week of DaTip­Jar since the DaTechGy’s mag­nif­i­cent seven began it’s ride has only man­aged to gen­er­ate 20% of my weekly goal.

If you want to know why you should pro­vide one of the 14 $20 or 11 $25 tip jar hit­ters needed to make this weeks goal consider:

This is my third post on the Project Ver­i­tas story in three days. As I type these words that’s three more than CNN, CBS, MSNBC, ABC & the Boston Globe com­bined.

Think about it.

Less than 72 hours ago I posted on the new videos from Project Veritas along with my exclusive interview with Daniel Francisco the Executive Director showing Obamacare shenanigans in Texas

Well it didn’t take long for those caught on videos  to become expendable:

The Urban League of Greater Dallas has reportedly fired one person and suspended three others after an undercover video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas caught Obamacare “navigators” advising a potential applicant to “lie”and provide false information to get a lower premium and more subsidies.

In a statement Tuesday, the Urban League said it “does not condone, nor would we ever sanction, misleading the public or any individual who seeks our assistance about any issue, and particularly in this case, an issue as critical as health care,” KDFW-TV reports.

The local Dallas Fort Worth Fox station filed a report. Watch the news report.  It’s worth noting while the Feds aren’t talking to the press it was DHS the recommended “de-certifying” the navigators in question.

We’ve seen the standard response about “edited” video from the Urban League

The Urban League also called for the unedited video of the incidents to be released. It said the undercover applicants were told the people they were speaking to were Navigators-in-training and “the full context of these comments is not reflected in the video.”

It’s interesting to see that the left IS learning, for example they’re not accusing O’Keefe & company of lying this time around.

What I find more interesting however is, with Obamacare being THE story in the news, how the MSM is handling the story of these videos, and the firing/suspensions of these navigators for the program.

Either none of these organization find a story of people fired for abuses involving administration of  obamacare THE most talked about subject in the country today,  newsworthy or apparently they’ve decided to go the full “Tree falling in the forest” figuring that with Bill Clinton et/al dominating the Obamacare story if nobody hears about it on their networks they won’t make a sound.

I would think such a story would immediately be recognized as newsworthy by any competent editor, but I don’t pay the bills at those news organizations so if they choose not to cover the story its their prerogative but perhaps the word “news” should be removed from their letterhead for the sake of accuracy.  .

Oh and in case you’re wondering I searched the Boston Globe for the phrase “project veritas” over the last 30 days as well
