<p><em>More in the <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/kyle-drennen/2017/05/09/lefty-journ…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the MRC&#39;s NewsBusters blog. </em></p>

<p>On Tuesday, left-wing City University of New York journalism professor Jeff Jarvis took to MSNBC&rsquo;s 9 a.m. ET hour to celebrate late-night host Jimmy Kimmel supposedly being poised to &ldquo;save health care&rdquo; from Republican plans to repeal ObamaCare. Talking to anchor Stephanie Ruhle, Jarvis proclaimed: <strong>&ldquo;The night he gave his first spiel on the show about his son I tweeted...that he will save health care.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Ruhle began the segment by touting how Kimmel was &ldquo;responding to critics on his first day back on the job after his passionate monologue about children&rsquo;s health care&rdquo; after he &ldquo;was aggressively criticized by the right for his plea for affordable health care coverage.&rdquo; She then brought on a panel of liberal guests &ndash; including Jarvis, Slate&rsquo;s Mike Pesca, and <em>Vanity Fair</em>&rsquo;s Bill Cohan &ndash; to praise the comedian and bash the GOP.</p>
