Universities try to "disappear" Gruber
It's not just Democrat politicians who are pretending they have never heard of M.I.T. professor and obamacare">Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber. Now universities where Gruber made some of his outrageous comments are removing videos of Gruber from their websites:
...at least two colleges who hosted the professor have tried to scrub Gruber from the internet. The University of Pennsylvania removed Gruber’s October 2013 panel appearance — in which he laughed about “the stupidity of the American voter” — on November 10, but quickly reposted the video after withering criticism.
On Monday the University of Rhode Island took a page out of Penn’s book, removing a 2012 discussion where Gruber explains how the law was passed to “exploit” the American voters’ “lack of economic understanding.” URI offered no explanation on its webpage as to why the video was pulled.
The aim is clear: scrub the videos from the internet">Internet, and no more embarrassing quotes will surface. Or so whomever is pulling the videos down hopes.
The fact is nothing ever really disappears from the Internet. If you're curious about what Mr. Gruber, or anyone else, may have said about Obamacare, one resource to check is the Internet Archive, where old sites continue to live on forever.
