Editor's Note: On Monday, American Morning’s audience voiced strong approval of President Obama’s call for an “up/down” vote on health care reform. Many expressed a continued desire for reform proposed by the president. Some remarked that children were especially vulnerable without coverage, commenting on the AM series “Saving Carlos.”
- Wayne: Why at 7:05 am or so on 3/8/10 are we listening only to McConnell - and aonther I miss - come through with lies objecting that reconciliation is totally partisan when he does not acknowledge that is how Bush's tax cuts were passed - by the way with Cheney's tie-breaking vote? I have to conclude yu are biassed and bought out by your owner.
- Dan: CNN – still working hard to defeat health care reform. You just showed Hatch and McConnell repeating their talking points, without pointing out how misleading those points are. That's a polite way of saying that they're lying. You also showed one Democrat who was on the fence. You also framed the entire story as if reform were likely to go down. You made it sound as if Obama is on a desperate mission. That's the way it comes across out on this side of the TV. Isn't it bad enough that CNN aired multi-million dollar ad campaigns from insurance company front groups for months, and yet NEVER mentions how these campaigns have affected public opinion. Of course, those campaigns pay your salaries, so I guess it's asking too much to think you might deal with reality on this issue. Simply pitiful.
- Lanny: I think your morning new is great reporting on your one story saving Carlos we should have more health care for our children as a taxpayer i would not care if they took more tax out for health care for our children
