Healthcare: Repeating Massachusetts' Mistakes?
Lieberman is a contributing editor of the Columbia Journalism Review,
where she regularly writes for its Campaign Desk on healthcare.
She has written a series of ten articles on the Massachusetts plan,

articles document the similarity of the current proposal in Congress
with the Massachusetts plan as well as that plan's record of failure in

Lieberman has also begun a series titled "Regulating Healthcare." The first piece was titled "Insurers and hospitals in Massachusetts snub the regulators."
Her latest piece is "Parsing the AP's Health Care Primer: Its
attempt at informing falls short." A complete archive of Lieberman's
Campaign Desk articles is at CJR.org.
