CBS Touts ObamaCare 'Success Story'; Omits His Support of the Obama Campaign

On the 19 December 2013 edition of CBS Evening News, Carter Evans spotlighted Leslie Foster, an apparent ObamaCare "success story," who gushed about the "amazing things" in his subsidized health plan. But Evans failed to mention that Foster "campaigned for President Barack Obama's election", as the Wall Street Journal noted in an October 7, 2013 article.

The correspondent zeroed in on Foster, an "independent filmmaker" in California, in the midst of a report that underlined the findings of the latest CBS News/New York Times poll, which found "a lot of skepticism...about the President's health care law. Only 16 percent of the Americans we talked to told us the law would help them. Eighty percent said it would hurt them or have no effect."
