Charlie Rose Spins That Obama Has Had to 'Modify' His 'You Will Keep It' Promise

Charlie Rose twice couldn't bring himself to clearly state that President Obama made a false promise when he repeatedly claimed that "if you like your insurance plan, you will keep it". On the 29 October 2013 edition of CBS This Morning, Rose underlined that "more than two million Americans are losing their current health care coverage because of ObamaCare. Jan Crawford uncovers new information on what could be a broken promise."

Two days later, the morning show anchor spun that "not all the promises [about ObamaCare] are turning out to be true, and he's [the President] had to modify some of them." Co-host Norah O'Donnell also followed Rose's lead and asserted that "yesterday...he [Obama] said, 'For the vast majority of people who have health insurance that works, you can keep it.' He made some qualifiers in that new statement, didn't he?"
