A recent White House initiative gives members of Congress and their staffs a 75 percent government contribution toward the cost of their insurance premiums under Obamacare.
Most reasonable people — we include ourselves — would call that a subsidy. But not Media Matters.
Calling the government contribution a subsidy earned us Media Matter’s most virulent denunciations — a “right-wing media” alert and a “zombie myth” peddler.
But it’s not much of a surprise that Media Matters would purposefully misrepresent the facts not only of the story but of the subsidies. The organization was founded, and is run, by David Brock, the Republican hitman turned liberal hitman whom even Democrats regard as dishonest.
