Argues that an award given to author Elizabeth McCaughey for her articles on a health care plan by U.S. President Bill Clinton has validated both a misleading view of health care plan and an idea of how journalists should affect public policy debate. View that the force of her articles derived from her claim that there was no exit from the mandatory insurance plans; Opinion that the plan had stronger privacy protection than its competitors; Impact of the plan on fee-for-service medicine.
