Ad Feedback

Congress might be missing the president's August deadline on health care, but a new study shows he wasn't without the help of the mainstream media.

The Business and Media Institute studied 6 months of media coverage on the health care plan.

It found 70 percent of soundbites aired -- supported Obama's plan.

Only 9 percent of stories said the plan's total cost would top $1 trillion.

And only one story investigated the state government health program in Massachusetts.

Julia Seymour is with the Business and Media Institute who did the study. She joined CBN News from Washington to share more on the study.

Stay tuned to hear about the big issues in the health care debate that the media is missing.
