People put hard work into putting together health care plans and this is what they get for their trouble:

Health care is also likely to provide points of difference. Obama laid out his health-care plan last week. Edwards offered his plan much earlier, and Clinton had put some of her ideas on the table as well. All point toward universal coverage as their goal but differ in how rapidly and dramatically they would move to get there.

That’s the last graf of a 1,000 word article. It manages to neither describe the differences between the Edwards and Obama plans nor the point of similarity. It doesn’t even say which candidate is moving more “rapidly and dramatically” in the direction of universal coverage. It doesn’t note that Clinton has not, in fact, laid out her ideas for expanding coverage. And yet, were the candidates to not release policy proposals for the press to ignore, the press would condemn them as lacking substance.
