More Liberal media - The Hill
Just in case people still believed the media were honest, balanced, ..., read this article by the Hill.

So, if many Democrats are unhappy with Baucus bill, it is because they were kept out of the room of negotiation.

Sen. Max Baucus spent months trying to win over Republicans on healthcare to no avail.

But his most challenging task is convincing members of his own party that he has their interests in mind.

Liberal Democrats have been skeptical of Baucus (D-Mont.) for years, and questioned why Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) let the centrist chairman of the Senate Finance Committee spend months negotiating behind the scenes with Republicans whom they suspected would never support the bill.

Some were even insulted by the way Baucus kept them out of the closed-door meetings, choosing a narrow group they say poorly represented the party
...


Of course, it could not be because the bill is bad.
