ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW THE RIGHT ROLLS

Check this out (it's brief), and then ask yourself if Kyl's "fact" will continue to exist and be accepted as valid among the rightwingers who only listen to Rush or watch Fox etc. And then think of all the rightwing lies that go unchallenged, or when challenged the perpetrator doesn't "walk it back" and continues to insist is "true"—or shrugs off as a "misstatement" or "misunderstanding" or blames it on someone else (WMD anyone?).

It's an epidemic of lies, because the media has made it a habit of rarely challenging the right on its lack of, or misrepresentation of, or distortion of, or outright contradiction of the truth (otherwise known as the facts, the positively verifiable, or reality).

Right on - and I don't mean the right wing because we know they're off - way off ...
The problem seems to be that indiscernible line between theater and news - fact and opinion - all of which is underwritten by corporate sponsorship ...

Obama in response to
Ryan's budget proposal. He seems to be reacting because polls seem to favor reining in big spending govt. Obama's domestic leadership ability seems to echo his weak international skills.

Loyeen, I know what you mean. I get so tired of hate in the comments of this blog, let alone Fox, I just have to turn it off for a while sometimes. Can't imagine having to deal with such simpleton generalities spewed with such hatred it's embarrassing to think it's coming from an adult, let alone an educated one. But if the only information is coming from rightwing media, rightwing think takn,s rightwing propaganda etc. etc. that leaves a pretty narrow and most often very false senrse of reality. I guess if I believed all the lies they tell, I'd be frightened too, or vindictive, depending on the day.
