There's nothing noble or moral or defensible about stripping vulnerable, poor people of healthcare in order to shift wealth to the rich, and changing the subject about how people would or would not support if it was "the other side" isn't helpful, it's just a distraction to try to avoid talking about the issue
I took it as voth getting defensive on behalf of the media when Gettleman slighted them in his comments. I like voth, but I don't like the attitude I've seen for years that is typical among media/journalists. .."we are owed access to everything and everyone. Don't you dare turn us down or speak ill about us or we'll make you pay."
