ABC Is Shocked That Anti-ObamaCare Ad Uses Actors (Pajama Boy not mentioned)
Newsbusters ^ | 2/14/14 | Scott Whitlock

Is it really shocking for commercials to use actors? According to ABC News, yes. A headline for the ABCNews.com article trumpeted, "Koch Brothers Ad Attacking [Democratic Senator] Mary Landrieu Uses Paid Actors." Rather than investigate the continued failings of ObamaCare, writer Jordyn Phelps hyped the fact that the commercials sponsored by the Koch brothers feature stand-ins, writing, "But the people in the emotion-evoking ad are not Louisianans at all; they are paid actors."

Phelps continued, "The ad shows a number of people, who appear to be Louisianans, opening their mail to find a letter stating that their health care policy has been cancelled because of the Affordable Care Act." The commercial features scenes of children running to a mailbox. It seems fairly obvious that such images were filmed and weren't caught accidentally.

“Rather than investigate the continued failings of ObamaCare”
Investigate the continued failings, really? Sounds like if we continue the investigaton we might find there were no failings. This is not an investigation it is a condemnation!

""But the people in the emotion-evoking ad are not Louisianans at all; they are paid actors."

People actually get paid for 'reporting' drivvle.

But wouldn't it be a kick if the actors really WERE from Louisiana ?


"Yeah .. well ... they're STILL actors"

"So is your president"

HOORAY Koch brothers! HOORAY actors! Criminals/socialists/totalitarians don’t like pushback. Some act like cockroaches, some hide in a rat-hole, some commit suicide. Others (and their enablers/sycophants) become more dangerous.

Push ‘em back, push ‘em back, waaaaaaay back!

Someone has to announce that the emperor is naked, and that the package he has is a bunch of mixed, tangled thread, some scraps of cloth, and a corroded sewing machine.

obama is a mediocre actor reading his lines, written by the people in power, so what’s the problem?

Did these people actually believe him when he said, “Under MY plan...”

COME ON KOCH BROTHERS. Give them exactly what they ask for. You should rent an auditorium and invite people to take turns telling their nightmare stories of what Obamacare has done to the health “care” they were perfectly happy with.

And the journalists at ABC are not journalists but paid political activists.

I look forward to the day that 0 starts blinking randomly and starts saying the same thing over and over then spasms with sparks coming out of his shirt then shuts down with America watching. A SS agent will then discover he’s a robot, open his rear hatch, and find a made in Russia by Soros Laboratories sticker . Hey a guy can dream can’t he?...: )

To the alphabet “news” organizations we are all idiots and cannot begin to see their bias. Look, it’s in the other hand.

But I guess it’s OK that ABC news hires actors to play journalists.

Stand up & be counted as anti-Obamacare so we can audit you, over & over again! (sarcasm off)

Wasn’t there a line at the bottom of the screen: “Reenactment”?

But ABC is ok with portraying Democrats as Republicans.

Do these MSM hack ever come in contact with the public at large? All the hacks obviously live in a bubble populated by politicians, other MSM hacks, and Hollyweird types. Is it possible to penetrate that bubble from the outside? They need to receive a barrage of real reality messages.

A number of ObamaCare victims who have gone public have reported unexpected visits from the IRS. In one case the IRS had discovered a problem in the critic's 10-year-old tax return.
