Did Glenn Thrush Knowingly Publish A Misleading Report About Andy Harris?

Seeing how the key takeaway quote is buried seven paragraphs deep.

[Andy Harris' spokeswoman, Anna] Nix said Harris, who is the father of five, wasn’t being hypocritical – he was just pointing out the inefficiency of government-run health care.

But that doesn't stop most liberal, progressive and idiot (but I've been repeating myself) blogs from clipping only the first two paragraphs.

A conservative Maryland physician elected to Congress on an anti-Obamacare platform surprised fellow freshmen at a Monday orientation session by demanding to know why his government-subsidized health care plan takes a month to kick in.

Republican Andy Harris, an anesthesiologist who defeated freshman Democrat Frank Kratovil on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, reacted incredulously when informed that federal law mandated that his government-subsidized health care policy would take effect on Feb. 1 – 28 days after his Jan. 3rd swearing-in.

Check out the Memeorandum link. Most of the liberal blogs (at least most of the ones I checked out. Didn't click through them all) have taken the first two paragraphs out of context and never mention the 'Punking' that Harris did.
