Melissa Francis: I Was Silenced by CNBC

By Chris Ariens 

FrancisGruberOn her FBN show this afternoon Melissa Francis tore into her former employer, CNBC, saying the network ‘silenced’ her when reporting on Obamacare.

The revelation comes after Fox News and Fox Business have been reporting extensively this week on Jonathan Gruber, an MIT economist and one of the architects of the Affordable Care Act, who was videotaped saying “the American voter’s too stupid” to understand the economics of Obamacare.

Francis went off on “the liberal media” who “help them cover up the truth.”

So far NBC, ABC, the Los Angeles Times, the Associated Press, and others, have been only too happy to comply. Those outlets have not even mentioned the video evidence from Jonathan Gruber. It’s shocking, but it actually doesn’t surprise me because when I was at CNBC, I pointed out to my viewers that the math of Obamacare simply didn’t work. Not the politics by the way. But just the basic math. And when I did that, I was silenced.

Francis joined FBN in 2011. At CNBC she was the co-anchor of “Power Lunch” and “The Call.”
