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.
