Hillary, The Media And Trina Bachtel: Part III
By Big Tent Democrat
Speaking for me only
It appears that, via Digby, NBC's Andrea Mitchell has a credibility problem:
Mitchell: Well, it turns out it's not true. After reading about the story in the Washington Post, hospital officials demanded that the Clinton campaign stop using that anecdote. They say there is no indication that this woman was denied medical care, that in fact, she did have insurance.
It turns out the hospital and NBC have a credibility problem - the woman WAS denied medical services, but not by the hospital that chose to accuse itself:
At an earlier time . . . Bachtel lacked health insurance and ran up unpaid bills when treated at a clinic near her home in Middleport. When she returned for treatment when pregnant, the clinic demanded $100 per visit to help retire the outstanding debt, Casto said. Because Bachtel could not afford the fees and found it difficult to travel, her aunt said, she postponed receiving treatment.
NEVER believe the Media. Hopefully, "progressive" blogs will learn their lesson. Just so you know, Andrea Mitchell and Howard Fineman are on TV attacking Hillary's credibility while they have completely gotten the story wrong. The Media is a joke.
