What The WaPo Wouldn't Run - The Dish | By Andrew Sullivan - The Daily Beast So the Washington Post was supposed to run a front page story about a free medical clinic in Tennessee, but pulled the story because it could be seen as too supportive of the Affordable Care Act. I guess it's beyond the realm of polite conversation to acknowledge our healthcare system is at third world standards for a significant portion of the population under the pre-ACA status quo. The question I have though is one about media bias. People on the right constantly complain about the "liberal bias" in the media. Where does that liberal bias live? Surely not at the Washington Post, which cheerleaded for the war in Iraq and cans stories that would harm the conservative narrative that health care is just fine and dandy in America.
