[See NewsBusters for more.]  CBS This Morning journalists on Tuesday spent an entire segment hyping the glories of Finland and the country's free stuff, chiding the United States for falling behind. With very little discussion on the nation's high taxes, reporter Holly Williams and the show’s hosts praised the country’s paid maternity leave, hospital care and even supposedly free nannies. Reporting from Finland, Williams praised, “In Finland, you're guaranteed around four months paid maternity leave by law. And parents can split another six months paid parental leave.”
