Maybe... just maybe... you're absolutely wrong and these sources are actually balanced!
Nah! You're ultra right wing thinking won't allow that no matter how true it is!
You have seen many things in your sorry lifetime, I'm sure, most of which never happened or existed.

The downfall of Detroit--thank you libs.

IF OBAMA HAD A CITY, IT WOULD LOOK JUST LIKE DETROIT.

No bombs, no invasions, no civil war, just “liberal”“progressive” politics day in, day out.

Americans sigh and say,“Oh, well, Detroit’s an ‘outlier.’”

It’s an outlier only in the sense that it happened here first. The same malign alliance between a corrupt political class, rapacious public-sector unions, and an ever more swollen army of welfare dependents has been adopted in the formally Golden State of California, and in large part by the Obama administration, whose priorities —“health”“care”“reform,”“immig ration”“reform”— are determined by the same elite/union/dependency axis.

As one droll tweeter put it,“If Obama had a city, it would look like Detroit.”

Google search....
FOX edits video.....2,110,000 hits.
NBC edits video.....680,000 hits.
So what does that prove? There are more stupid people looking to find anything to discredit Fox?

How many edits by Fox did they find?
How many edits by NBC?

The clueless don't want to know about NBC. They know they could be proven wrong and won't have anymore excuses.

You just don't get it.

People with pre-existing conditions cost more to treat than they pay in premium. Stupid emorons call this an economic boon.

How Detroit Goes...so goes any Democrat run city...

IF OBAMA HAD A CITY, IT WOULD LOOK JUST LIKE DETROIT.

By the time Detroit declared bankruptcy, Americans were so inured to the throbbing dirge of Motown’s Greatest Hits —

40 percent of its streetlamps don’t work;

210 of its 317 public parks have been permanently closed;

it takes an hour for police to respond to a 9-1-1 call;

only a third of its ambulances are driveable;

one-third of the city has been abandoned;

the local realtor offers houses on sale for a buck and still finds no takers; etc., etc.—

Americans were so inured that the formal confirmation of a great city’s downfall was greeted with little more than a fatalistic shrug.

But it shouldn’t be. To achieve this level of devastation, you usually have to be invaded by a foreign power.

In the War of 1812, when Detroit was taken by a remarkably small number of British troops without a shot being fired, Michigan’s Governor Hull was said to have been panicked into surrender after drinking heavily.

Two centuries later, after an almighty 50-year bender, the city surrendered to itself.

The tunnel from Windsor, Ontario, to Detroit, Michigan, is now a border between the First World and the Third World — or, if you prefer, the developed world and the post-developed world.

To any American time-transported from the mid 20th century, the city’s implosion would be literally incredible: Were he to compare photographs of today’s Hiroshima with today’s Detroit, he would assume Japan won the Second World War after nuking Michigan.

Detroit was the industrial powerhouse of America, the “arsenal of democracy,” and in 1960 the city with the highest per capita income in the land.

Half a century on, Detroit’s population has fallen by two-thirds, and in terms of “per capita income,” many of the shrunken pool of capita have no income at all beyond EBT cards.

The recent HBO series Hung recorded the adventures of a financially struggling Detroit school basketball coach forced to moonlight as a gigolo.

It would be heartening to think the rest of the bloated public-sector work force, whose unsustainable pensions and benefits have brought Detroit to its present sorry state (and account for $9 billion of its $11 billion in unsecured loans), could be persuaded to follow its protagonist and branch out into the private sector, but this would probably be more gigolos than the market could bear, even allowing for an uptick in tourism from Windsor.

That is not what the hospital's website states.
The point is that quality medical care will never be free.
"St Mary's Hospital is a hospital in Paddington, London, that was founded in 1845. Since the UK's first academic health science centre was created in 2008, it has been operated by Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, which also operates Charing Cross Hospital, Hammersmith Hospital, Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea Hospital, Teddington Memorial Hospital, and Western Eye Hospital, as well as some services at St Charles Hospital in Ladbroke Grove.

Until 1988 the hospital ran St Mary's Hospital Medical School, part of the federal University of London. In 1988 it merged with Imperial College London, and then with Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School in 1997 to form Imperial College School of Medicine. In 2007 Imperial College became an independent institution when it withdrew from the University of London."

And while the private Lindo Wing could possible cost as much as 12,00 pounds for a high risk delivery and neo-natal care, the facility itself is very S[artan. The great advantage is additional staff and privacy issues.(Wonder who replaced that nurse who committed suicide after being taken in by a radio prank?)
