BRISTOL, Tenn (AP/WMOT) — The Supreme Court’s deliberations on the president’s health care reform continue to day and the head of the Tennessee based Christian Medical Association is weighing in on the issue.
Dr. David Stevens says the country desperately needs health care reform, but believes the president’s measure is flawed. He fears the Affordable Care Act may bankrupt the country.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (BURRISS) -- The United States Supreme Court is hearing arguments this week about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, perhaps the most far-reaching piece of legislation in decades. You’ll be able to read about the oral arguments, and you’ll be able to hear the audio. But what you won’t get is the chance to see the justices or the attorneys make their arguments.
It’s time for the Court to televise at least some of its proceedings, particularly those cases that have wide-spread impact on ordinary citizens.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- This Friday, March 9th, marks an unusual coincidence in anniversaries and significant dates in the media. In 1954 on this date, C-B-S news reporter Edward R. Murrow aired his famous Joseph McCarthy broadcast. And 10 years later, in 1964, also on March 9th, the U.S. Supreme Court limited the power of government officials to sue newspapers for defamatory statements made in the heat of public debate.
The March 9th broadcast of "See It Now" has been directly linked to the downfall of McCarthy, and the beginning of the end of McCarthyism.
