Healthcare Bill Passed By Senate, Media Drops Coverage TILTcast

On Sunday evening, March 21st, 2010, the most comprehensive near Universal Healthcare Bill passed the Senate.

This I learned Today (TILTcast 18) - Why did this only render two minutes of late night local news coverage?

Huge lack of coverage that is a major understatement.

Whether you are for or against the new law, you should at least know what it is (since the media apparently won't tell you (including citations from the major media coverage tonight):

  • The vote in the House was 219-212. Republicans were unanimously opposed. The bill now goes to President Barack Obama for his signature. (KCAL 9)
  • Kids can stay on parents' insurance until age 26 (FOX 11 News)
  • would make a nearly $1-trillion commitment in taxpayer money over the next decade to help an estimated 32 million uninsured Americans get health coverage.(New York Times - still using past tense langage)
  • 95% of US will be covered (NBC 4 News)
  • More to come as everyone finally reads the bill....

Wednesday night the Titans of Cal State Fullerton continued their quest for an NCAA tournament berth by showing the door to the CU Northridge Matadors,  who will not be able to repeat their appearance in the NCAA Tournament again this year.

First year Titan Jer'Vaughn Johnson stepped into the Anaheim Convention Center on a mission with an efficient double double leading Fullerton one step closer to a bid to March Madness.  Sharing the ball became key in spreading the scoring down the stretch with key assists from Gerard Anderson leading the way.  Jacques Streeter also adjusted his role by adding 7 rebounds to his 12 points.

Northridge struggled throughout the game to find a pace they could control the game.  A big game by Vincent Cordell including a double double of his own kept the Matadors motivated but was ultimately unable to slow his defensive assignment.  One of the problems was bench player Kenny Daniels taking a team leading 15 shots while failing to find his shot. To the contrary Fullerton's Devon Peltier drained five triples to boost the scoring of the starters.

The game was lost by CSUN by the mid point of the second half, despite a powerful comeback with 3 minutes left in the game.
