Proving again why he's become the face of political journalism in Colorado, Fox 31 Denver's Eli Stokols has produced, with Thomas Hendrick, a week-long series, called "Prescription for Change," that beautifully illuminates the myths, pitfalls and benefits of Obamacare -- as well as the details of how the new health care law affects you.
I can't guarantee it, but I'll give you my kids' cat if you can find better local TV news coverage of Obamacare anywhere in the country.

Many local TV news reporters would love to be given the opportunity to actually practice journalism like Fox 31 allows Stokols to do.
But the management at most TV stations around the country wouldn't dare touch this type of in-depth, informative reporting on a policy issue like Obamacare, because they think it's boring on the tube. Stokols proves them wrong again in this series, and, thank you, Fox 31 managers and Stokols for doing it.
Scandals, investigations, and consumer reports, yes, you see that on local TV. And that's good. But beat coverage of politics and policy issues? Fox 31 Denver continues to air coverage that you rarely see on TV.
