The important aspect to this Buzzfeed story is not Über rising to say how wonderful ObamaCare is for their business model. The important aspect is revealing, yet again, the insufferable biases within media outlets.
Against an avalanche of newly fueled Gruber ObamaCare sunlight, the far-left moonbats are trying to find ways to point out the glory of ObamaCare despite the fact it was constructed around lies and falsehoods. In essence, and as typical, ‘the ends justify the means’.
Into this need steps the media enterprise Buzzfeed. A quasi-journalistic source of social media and current event information which passes itself off as ‘journalism’. Buzzfeed starts off with this paragraph:
The CEO of Uber said Friday that Obamacare has played a crucial role for his army of drivers, an unusual, partial endorsement of the president’s signature policy from a man often cast as a hero of anti-government libertarianism.
The rest of the article is explaining how.
Wow, a company benefitting from ObamaCare and willing to take a policy and strategic media approach to announce as such…… Or is there something missing.
What’s missing? How about this little annoying factoid from August:
David Plouffe, the former campaign manager and White House adviser to President Barack Obama, is taking his political secret sauce to Uber late next month as senior vice president of policy and strategy, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick told POLITICO in an interview Tuesday.
Kalanick said from the ride-matching company’s headquarters in San Francisco that Uber “is trying to win hearts and minds,” adding: “There’s an incumbent … the big-taxi cartel … and we’re the challenger.” (link)
Well, now that you put it that way – it kinda makes sense a company whose VP of policy and strategy would push the praises of a law he aided to fruition as the #1 go-to guy for political Obama.
Apparently Buzzfeed doesn’t find that little motive factoid important.
