The Norwich Bulletin can endorse whomever they wish for the Republican 2nd Congressional Primary. That is not the issue here. I am saying they can't call people liars when facts say otherwise. The Bulletin wrote:
"During her editorial board meeting with us, one
of the claims Novak made was that 83 percent of doctors across the country are contemplating leaving the medical profession because of the Affordable Care Act. But there is no evidence to support that claim, typical of the inaccurate and misleading statements she makes in defending her positions."
So since the Bulletin basically said Novak made up this statistic out of thin air, I have posted the report in question below which Novak correctly quoted. It was written by the Doctor Patient Medical Association Foundation. You can read it in full here: http://www.dpmafoundation.org/physician-attitudes-on-medicine.html
The Town Hall article that Novak mentioned about this study is this one by Kate Hicks: http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katehicks/2012/06/14/thanks_obamacare_83_of_doctors_surveyed_say_they_may_quit
On this narrow point the Bulletin owes Daria Novak an apology and must retract its false accusation. Their endorsement shall stand (for whatever that is worth), but they must fess up that they blew it. If a retraction isn’t forth-coming, than they are the intellectually dishonest ones. Their reputation is at stake.
I sent them all an email demanding such. They will get it first thing on Monday.
