Source Notes (2): Relief Seen for Jobless and States in Health Care Plan

Title: Relief Seen for Jobless and States in Health Care Plan

Summary: This is a news article about House Democrats creating a temporary new entitlement allowing workers getting unemployment checks to qualify for Medicaid, the health program for the poor.

Topic: Universal Health Care

Category: Journalistic

What is it?: A news article from the web version of the New York Times.

Publication Information: The New York Times, January 27, 2009,

Author: Robert Pear

Location: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/28/us/28health.html?_r=1&scp=2&sq=Obama%27s%20health%20care%20plan&st=cse

Accessed: January 29, 2009

Support:

House Democrats; Representative Michael C. Burgees, Republican of Texas; Democrat Anna G. Eshoo, Democrat of California; Representative Pete Stark, Democrat of California.

Audience and Agenda: Many people, including myself, think of the New York Times as one of the most reliable newspapers you can read because it’s very credible. However, it leans more toward a liberal standpoint and can tend to be a little bias sometimes, depending on the matter.

Usefulness: This story was very useful to me because it was very up-to-date about this new bill. As I mentioned above, the New York Times tends to be a bit liberal but I like that the article had republican viewpoints as well.
