Breitbart brings Viewership to Katie Couric, for laughs

Katie Couric, the relatively unwatched one, thinks that We're opposing Obamacare out of ignorance. Get a laugh here, if you want to break your long routine of ignoring this leftist propagandist.

I'm too tired after a long night of work to look up the contact info, or I'd aim this at Katie directly. Readers, feel free to do so, if your copy/paste works well.

Hearing anyone from the news media speak about anyone else's supposed ignorance in the area of health care and medicine is side splitting. My experience with the media in general is that 95 percent of the reporters have insufficient background to comprehend the answers when conducting an interview in the areas of science and medicine. Sometimes I've had to write the material down for them and send links to full background info. Of course I've had to spell the terminology and give definitions incessantly to the scientifically illiterate journalists. In explaining drug mechanisms of action, I've had to first review background that kids learn in primary school, and go forward from there. The results after these efforts were often quite underwhelming. Some people are untrainable. The few reporters who were able to understand and convey medical information were welcome relief from the frustration.

Most astonishing is that the vast majority of reporters did not realize that the Hippocratic Oath has been generally out of use by graduating MDs for a generation, because it forbids abortion, physician assisted suicide and euthanasia.

Obviously, Sarah Palin knows this fact well. Moms who experience untoward fetal diagnoses experience the "suggestion of abortion". Even docs, who wouldn't abort, feel that if they don't mention the possibility, they be dealt a wrongful life lawsuit down the road. At the other end of life is the denial of care, and the inculcation of a duty to die. Such is the progress of the government's influence on health care thus far. Palin's term "death panel", for the entities in charge of cost containment through the denial of care, was precisely on target, and this is why the Dems and their media echo/chorus are howling in rage.

The trepidation brought on by thoughts of government controlled health care results from awareness of the above, and exactly what it means. Katie is 180 degrees out of phase with reality. This allows her to express her personal views without embarrassment.
