What the media said about Jindal on Meet the Press
 

obamacare-deadLouisiana Governor Bobby Jindal had his chance to shine on Meet The Press.  What did the media say about his appearance his first with Chuck Todd?  Here is a short mix of some of the good, the bad and the factual.

 Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal again over the weekend wouldn’t get specific on his timeline for deciding whether to run for president, but he said to expect a decision sometime in the “first half of next year.”

What private insurance would Medicaid-eligible people under the ACA expansion be giving up?
The privatized Medicaid insurance program in Louisiana that doesn't pay for any hospital care -- Bayou Health. What Bobby Jindal has crafted is a private Medicaid system for primary care with only a charity hospital system as the hospital safety net.
Because he refused to expand Medicaid, hospitals are closing emergency rooms around the state. Worse yet, that charity hospital system is being privatized, which means hospitals will not get the benefit of federal dollars to defray the costs of treating the poor.
In other words, that claim of Jindal's that people will leave private insurance is a straight-up lie because all he needed to have done was present a plan simillar to the one his cohorts in Arkansas and Pennsylvania did to allow private carriers to cover Medicaid-eligible residents of Louisiana.

On Sunday Governor Jindal appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press with Chuck Todd who asked him straight on about whether or not the Governor planned on running for President in 2016. Governor Jindal demurred, saying that his family was “praying about this.” However, he also took the time to lay out a very convincing argument for why the nation would do well to have him be the next President.
Beyond Governor Jindal’s own arguments – let me remind you of why he is likely

Chuck Todd’s advent as host of Meet the Press hasn’t convinced me to tune in. But this morning I glanced at a transcript from yesterday’s show, and it’s fun to see Chuck wrestling with Bobby Jindal’s characteristic twisting of reality on the subject of immigration:
CHUCK TODD:
Very quickly on immigration. If the president goes through with his executive action, do you think Republicans and Capitol Hill ought to use even the power of shutting down the government to stop him from doing it?
GOV. BOBBY JINDAL:
Two things. I don’t think the president should shut down the government to try to break the Constitution. The reality is this. I do think the—
