I was somewhere on the Volga River listening via Skype™ to Reality Check Radio, guest hosted by Bill Bryan (aka Foggy), this past September 24. There were two notable things on the show. One was Foggy’s announcement that he was becoming certified to use the federal Health Insurance Marketplace and would be assisting folks in his state to sign up for insurance under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare). The second was some fairly derisive remarks about Sharon Rondeau, the editor of The Post & Email web site. Foggy and Dr. Ken Noisewater focused on how gullible she was in publishing an article created to see how crazy an article she would publish.
Now Rondeau strikes back in an article at The Post and Email, “Report: Look Who Is An Obamacare Navigator; Obama ID Fraud Defender,” The P&E is a pay subscription site, but this was reprinted at Obama Release Your Records).
A cursory review of the article suggests that it was intended to put Foggy in the worst possible light, but not to cross the line into actual defamation. It consists of selected facts connected with innuendo. The subject of the story is Foggy’s new job enrolling people for ObamaCare. The article focuses on Foggy’s “hammer and sickle” hat, some past health problems, his web site’s negative view of birthers in general, and how much information ABOUT YOU, the health care “navigators” can access. (I can’t vouch for the accuracy of any of her claims about the role of insurance “navigators.”) Foggy isn’t, however, a navigator, but a licensed insurance agent currently representing Blue Cross/Blue Shield. I hope Foggy signs up lots of folks and gets lots of commissions.
Rondeau mentions me in passing as evidence that “‘Obots’ cannot be trusted to tell the truth,” a false generalization of my article, “Punking the birthers: priceless.” Still, I hope the folks at ORYR will read that article because it makes birthers seem pretty silly.
I love [hate] remarks like this:
It is unknown how many Obots are working as navigators or behind the scenes for the Obama regime.
Is her ignorance supposed to be evidence of something? I can only speak for myself: the only government check I get is from Social Security. (All my adult life conservatives told me I would never see a dime of the money I paid into Social Security. )
