On Dec. 6, Richard Pollock wrote an article headlined Doctors boycotting Californias Obamacare exchange for the Washington Examiner. A quick Internet search shows dozens of sites almost 100 with similar headlines. For example: Epic Fail: 70% Of Californias Doctors Boycotting ObamaCare Website Called a Shell Game and so on.
So far, I have seen no one questioning the veracity of such statements. The article itself is vague and ambiguous. Apparently, Independent insurance brokers ... estimate that about 70 percent of Californias 104,000 licensed doctors are boycotting the exchange. Or they are rebelling, whatever that means. The 70 percent boycott sounds extraordinary; as Carl Sagan once said, extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. Am I too skeptical, or are all these websites being too gullible?
Show me the proof.
