    But your theory works, too.

      '...Representative Barton accused the ACA of breaking privacy rules. Representative Pallone called the hearing a monkey court while claiming that the rules aren't broken because no actual medical information is given in the application phase.

      In other news...'

      I have this argument all of the time. We don't "take sides" in reporting. We report both sides and let people make up their own minds.

      Most of the people taking a hard line against us are firmly convinced that they are the last defenders of civilization... The last stronghold of mother, God, home and apple pie and they're full of shit! David Crosby, Journey Thru the Past.

        The two "sides" of the facts are spin, not journalism.

        The fact in this story is "Representative Barton stated that the ACA violates HIPPA," which is not, in fact, true.

        Representative Pallone corrected him and called the hearing a "monkey court," which is not, in fact, an idiom.

        "Jersey_Boy" was taken.
