NBC's Alter Wins DisHonors Quote of Year: Obamacare ‘Repal Equals Death … A Lot of People Will Die’

(CNSNews.com) – Author, columnist, and MSNBC contributor Jonathan Alter was awarded the “Quote of the Year” on Thursday by the Media Research Center (MRC) for his remark that repeal of Obamacare “equals death,” that “people will die in the United States … a lot of people will die.”

While discussing the 2012 election race on MSNBC’s The Ed Show,  on Aug. 9, Alter said, “Repeal equals death. People will die in the United States if Obamacare is repealed. That is not an exaggeration. That is not crying fire. It’s a simple fact. So, we’re not calling Mitt Romney a murderer. We are saying that if he’s elected resident, a lot of people will die.”

That quote was re-played Thursday evening before a crowd of 900-plus people at the MRC’s 2013 Gala and DisHonors Awards at the J. W. Marriott Hotel in Washington, D.C. The audience voted on several liberally biased news quotes and awarded Alter the “Quote of the Year.”

The MRC Gala and DisHonors Awards are held nearly every year to “honor” some of the most liberally biased journalists and left-leaning news reports in the media.  The MRC is the parent organization of CNSNews.com.
