In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the curious silence of the “news” media on the four December court rulings that went against the HHS mandate, as compared to the thousands of stories they produced about the relatively unimportant Hobby Lobby decision:
In December, there were five federal court decisions relating to ObamaCare. Chances are, however, that you will have heard about only one of them. If you do a web search for recent news stories on Hobby Lobby, whose long-shot request for a Supreme Court injunction against the HHS contraception mandate was denied last week, you will get thousands of hits.
Here’s where the curious silence comes in:
Now, using precisely the same parameters, do a search for recent stories on Wheaton College. You will get fewer than a dozen results relating to the December 18 decision by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to overrule a lower court dismissal of Wheaton’s lawsuit against the government pursuant to the HHS mandate.
Why have the media made such a big deal of the Hobby Lobby ruling while virtually ignoring four other December decisions? The answer is obvious. That the Obama Justice Department batted one-for-five in December is not to be advertised.
