Drum is annoyed with 60 Minutes!

MONDAY, APRIL 8, 2019

He may have missed the key point:
Our favorite blogger, Kevin Drum, is annoyed with 60 Minutes. Angry headline included, we'll let him explain his pique:
DRUM (4/8/19): When It Comes to Student Debt, Doctors Are the Least of Our Worries

Last night 60 Minutes ran a segment about the massive loans that med school students have to take out
—and the “radical” solution that NYU found to this. It was basically just a feel-good bit of fluff, but it sure pissed me off anyway. Why? Let me count the ways:

Of all the groups to focus on who are suffering under the burden of student debt, they chose doctors? Seriously?
That was just the first point which Drum said pissed him off. He went on to list four additional points, which are well worth reviewing.

That said, did Drum possibly miss the key problem with the 60 Minutes report? To wit:

Shouldn't the program have focused on the only doctors who really count? Why not focus on doctors who started out by getting admitted to Yale?

    “They” means 60 Minutes? The story is about a specific decision at NYU. They (NYU and the billionaires) chose to take this approach with the medical program. 60 Minutes reported on it. It seems like a good thing. And, has Kevin combed through the 60 Minutes archives to find out if they might have reported on the student loans of other types of students at some time in the past?

    1. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.

  2. "Shouldn't the program have focused on the only doctors who really count?"

    The 'black' doctors, of course. They are the ones who really need to be taken care of, by the government.

    And liberals will do it, if elected. Only the liberals.

  5. "Doctors" are the Trojan Horse the left uses to convince taxpayers to fund leftist indoctrination for the less capable sociology, ethnic studies and fine arts majors, to the tune of tens of thousands per year.

    Hard pass.

  12. Do anyone still doubt natural herbs? I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs each time they are sick. Natural herbs can cure all kinds of illness including herpes, diabetics, asthma, HIV, hepatitis, etc. I've seen it with my own eyes. I was cured of cancer and my aunt and her husband were cured of herpes by Dr Udi who uses natural herbs to cure different kind of illness. Even Dr.Udi proved to the whole world countless times that natural herbs can cure all diseases and he cured countless of people using natural herbs. I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm in trying herbs it will only get you cured from what you being so why don't you give herbs a try and see it effectiveness Contact or email Dr Udi (Drudiherbalhome@gmail.com) (phone/whatsap no): +2348051243538.
