Media gets wrath of Obama for reporting healthcare backlash

Last Friday Barack Obama (pictured) accused television networks of being headline hungry and enflaming an ugly backlash by opponents of ObamaCare.

Until now the media has been stumbling over themselves to report only favorable White House news.

Welcome to the real world Mr. President!

A combative Obama also accused health insurance firms of holding sick Americans "hostage" as he launched a weekend tour of mountain west states Montana, Colorado and Arizona where suspicion of Washington runs deep.

The photo above shows protestors outside the “orchestrated” Obama town hall in Grand Junction, Colorado on Saturday.

Back to the article:

"I know there's been a lot of attention paid to some of the town hall meetings that are going on around the country, especially when tempers flare," Obama said, at his own event with 1,300 people in an airport hangar.

Tempers have flared as voters have accused Obama of plotting a "socialized" takeover of the private health system.

Now it appears that Obama’s temper is flaring as prompt passage of the 1,000 page ObamaCare bill seems to be slipping away.
