Video: "Doctor Roxana" Asks Helpful "Question" (Actually States a Talking Point), Claims to Be a Primary Care Physician, a "Member of a Dying Breed'

A dying breed: As a commenter snarked, she only lops off fake tonsils and feet.

And, at Hot Air: She's a member of Organizing for America, too.

Who would have guessed.

And, believe it or not, the newspaper taken in by her has stealthily changed the story about her, deleting all references to "doctor," without reporting this Organizing for America woman lied for their cameras.

Grassroots fever!

I imagine Patterico will have more updates, but apparently he's been linked by the entire right-blogosphere and is unavailable at the moment.

Soft-Pedal: I'm informed by David that the Chron is now making some very soft admissions about the woman, but will not note that she is an Obama delegate or a member of Organizing for America:

One supporter, Roxana Mayer, praised the reform plan for overhauling a broken system.

I don't know what there is in the bill that creates such panic, she said.

Mayer identified herself as a physician who does not live in Jackson Lee's district. However, her name does not appear in the database maintained by the Texas Medical Board, which licenses all doctors in Texas.

In an e-mail to the Chronicle on Thursday morning, Mayer confirmed she is not a licensed physician.

"I have been advised to refrain from making any further statements," she said.

She's not a licensed physician? Ah, so we're still suggesting that maybe she's a doctor whose license has expired?

No: She's not a doctor at all, licensed or unlicensed.

Note how the Chron phrases this as weakly as possible.

And note how the hard-charging investigatory journalism stops immediately when a liberal malefactor is discovered.
