Marco Rubio Falls for Bogus Medical Study
Media Matters has done yeoman’s work debunking the myth of a “New England Journal of Medicine study” that allegedly found 46 percent of physicians ready to “leave medicine or try to leave medicine” if health care reform passes. The prestigious journal conducted no such study; the numbers were assembled from a non-random study by The Medicus Firm. But perhaps because Investor’s Business Daily produced another slanted poll with a similar number of “doctors ready to quit,” this meme has really taken off. One of those duped: Florida U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio.

Rubio actually writes his own tweets, by the way.
