Who needs reporters when you just let liberal groups write the "news" for you?

Mark Steyn at the Corner points out this story about how newspapers across the country all printed within 24 hours a story fed by a “progressive” group with ties to ACORN and the SEIU starting a full court press for ObamaCare.

Are newspapers so pressed for cash that they don’t have their own reporters any more, and just print false or misleading OpEd pieces from liberal interest groups as news?
