"The Curious Case of 200 Nearly Identical Media Headlines"

All within 24 hours.

• Third of Illinoisans went without health insurance in last 2 years: Sun-Times

• Report: 2.5M in Michigan lacked health insurance: Chicago Tribune

• Study: 29% of Ohioans have gone without health insurance: BizJournals

• 1 out of 3 Coloradans lacked insurance in past two years: Denver Post

• Nearly 1 in 3 Idahoans lack health insurance, study says: Idaho Statesman

• One in four nonelderly Minnesotans has been without health insurance, study shows: Twin Cities

• 1 in 3 are uninsured in Georgia, study says: Augusta Chronicle

• REPORT: 254K Rhode Islanders Uninsured at Some Point from 2007-2008: ABC 6

The "study" frequently mentioned in the headlines was done by Families USA, a liberal advocacy group:

According to Discover the Networks, Families USA is a member of the "Progressive States Network", which works closely with (you guessed it) ACORN and the SEIU. These ultra-partisan groups have truly one agenda: big government.

Director Blue goes on to take apart the study.

Isn't it odd that the moment a hardcore liberal group sends out a study to the media, 200 headlines blossom?

I'm not sure that happens when Heritage or the AEI sends out a study.

I sorta think it doesn't.
