Ski Mt. Dumb-ass

A couple of days ago, Colorado talk-radio host Peter Boyles (loved him in Young Frankenstein) discussed a June 12 Dallas Morning News article headlined, "Parkland will treat all moms-to-be." Well, Colorado Media Matters, a state-based project of the nonprofit "progressive" group Media Matters for America, reports on its Web site that Boyles "distorted" the piece, claiming, among other things, "that maternity care at the hospital is now free for illegal immigrants, and he wrongly related the comments of a woman quoted in the article." You can do your own compare and contrast, but the guy sounds like every other genius on right-wing talk radio: "The illegals' medical care is free simply because they're illegals," he said. Uh, not so much. --Robert Wilonsky
