(NEWSER) – The name Jonathan Gruber should be a lot more familiar than it is right now, writes media critic Howard Kurtz. He's referring to the MIT professor and ObamaCare architect who suggested in a recently surfaced video from 2013 that the "stupidity of the American voter" helped get the law passed. First, the offending quote from Gruber:
- “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter, or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass."
In a column at Fox News, Kurtz blasts mainstream media outlets, which usually salivate over a good hidden-video story, for ignoring this one. "This is utterly inexplicable, except as a matter of bias," he writes. "No matter what you think of ObamaCare, on what planet is this not news?"
