Democrat Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (pictured) used a satire blog as her “news source” to slam House Republican critics of ObamaCare.
It was during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on ObamaCare when the New York Democrat made a fool of herself by slamming Republican ObamaCare critics with quotes from a satirical New Yorker blog feature called “The Borowitz Report.”
Rep. Carolyn Maloney quoted from several stories in the Borowitz satire blog as if they were accurate, most notably one in which author Andy Borowitz joked that Republicans are complaining that the problem-plagued ObamaCare website is working too fast.
She later called the blog a “distinguished report.”
A word about the The Borowitz Report:
Borowitz describes his blog in the New Yorker magazine as “news, reshuffled.” His latest post is about how the Hubble Space Telescope is sending “selfies” (photos taken of oneself with the camera held out at arms length) back to NASA.
It’s for people like Congresswoman Maloney that we see Do Not Eat printed on sterno cans and silica gel packets.
