Newsbusters' Sheppard: Mainstream Media Want Obamacare to Succeed

Friday, 04 Oct 2013 06:58 PM

By Bill Hoffmann

The mainstream media have been treating the Affordable Care Act with kid gloves, according to Noel Sheppard, associate editor of the media-watchdog website Newsbusters.

"This is [President Barack Obama's] signature piece of legislation. The media wants it to succeed," Sheppard told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.

Sheppard believes that so far, the implementation of the law is "not looking good" — something that Obama wants to downplay to Americans.

"To a certain extent it's very possible that this is why Obama wanted the [government] shutdown — because he wanted there to be news to take away from the disaster," Sheppard said.

"You have to agree, if there were a lot of people that signed up … we would know. They'd be crowing."
