NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine - https://archive.org/web/.

Bitter SCHIP recipe

On this blog I have been remiss not to weigh in on the recent and ongoing debate over children’s health insurance and the SCHIP or State Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Not surprisingly, some of the wittiest commentary has come from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Their segments within the past week should not be missed.

Stewart’s coverage on the Daily Show includes a biting commentary from John Oliver.

On the Colbert Report, the host said:

“If we really care for our kids, we should deny them health insurance now to immunize them against expecting it as adults. If we don’t, when they grow up, who knows what other unrealistic things they’re going to expect? You know, if we fund Head Start now, later, they’ll expect education. If we fund school lunches now, later, they’ll expect food.”

Who spent more time exploring the issues and looking at the debate: Comedy Central? Or ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, Fox?
