Elise Viebeck has a contemptible bit of linkbait up at The Hill, suggesting that ObamaCare premiums are going to skyrocket next year because not enough “invincible” young people are signing up. As Ed Kilgore demonstrates, the piece has been updated with information that contradicts Ms. Viebeck’s premise, but the alarmist headline has not changed.
I did a little snooping and discovered that Ms. Viebeck is a former Collegiate Network Intern
for the National Review. So, having been trained in the wingnut welfare pipelines, it really should not come as any surprise that she’s pushing out this garbage.
Here are some other Collegiate Network alumni: the editor of National Review Rich Lowry, CNN and ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl, New York Times columnist Ross Douthat, and best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza.
So, basically The Hill has been infiltrated. But I bet they are happy with the traffic.
