Desperate Shilling For Obamacare Reaches Hollywood

In the face of abject failure of the exchange website and millions losing their coverage, more propaganda was badly needed.

Some "What you gonna believe - What I said then or what I say now." from the President isn't going to do it.

So the progressives are going to pay Hollywood to insert pro-Obamacare propaganda into your weekly sitcom, dramas and relaity shows.

The Detroit Free Press: Boosters of health care law turn to Hollywood for help

The California Endowment, a private foundation that is spending millions to promote President Barack Obama’s signature law, recently provided a $500,000 grant to ensure that TV writers and producers have information about the Affordable Care Act that can be stitched into story lines watched by millions.

The aim is to produce compelling prime-time narratives that encourage Americans to enroll, especially young and healthy people, Hispanics and other key demographic groups needed to make the overhaul a success.

“We know from research that when people watch entertainment television, even if they know it’s fiction, they tend to believe that the factual stuff is actually factual,” said Martin Kaplan of the University of Southern California’s Norman Lear Center, which received the grant.

The statement that young people believe that the "factual stuff is actually factual" whether from the media or the Democrats, but I repeat myself, explains a lot of the problems with Obamacare and the stat of our nation right there.

But worry not, Hollywood will keep right on taking the Democrats' money and carrying the Democrats' water and lying to you. For your own good.
