Media Elite on Public’s Reaction to “Reform”

Here are a couple of media quotes, courtesy of The Patriot Post, displaying the elite media’s insulting and paternalistic opinion of the American public and their opposition to health-care “reform”: 

“You’ve got 47 percent of the people at our NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll who have health insurance who don’t like what the president’s doing. The problem he’s got, 47 percent of the people who have got coverage don’t want change. They don’t like what they’re hearing. Now, they may not know what’s good for them (emphasis added), but the problem is that he always knew he was going to have to persuade people with insurance.” – Andrea Mitchell

“The insurance industry and some of the medical moguls continue to demonize health care reform as ‘socialism.’ The broadcast wing of the Republican Party, led by Rush Limbaugh, is pumping out fear-mongering falsehoods about health reform. I am concerned that members of the House and Senate who favor reform have a massive task ahead of them during their August break: They need to re-educate the public (emphasis added) about what reform will do — and what it won’t.” – Helen Thomas
