Liar Liar, Teevee On Fire

I agree with this wholeheartedly.

Known Liars Should Be Banned From TV

In this case, the Pinocchio is John Sununu, who insists--major fact-checkers and CNN to the contrary--that President Obama's welfare initiative does indeed cut work requirements. What I can't figure out is why people keep inviting him to soil their screens, other than the usual he said/she said nonsense. Got to get the "other side" to weigh in on the matter, even though the other side is spouting that the moon is made of green cheese.

(Of course, if this was ever implemented, Fox News would cease to exist, and climate-change deniers, Sarah Palin, and Mitt Romney's entire campaign would vanish. Which would be a feature, not a bug.)

Facts are facts, folks, no matter how much Fox News Fake Noise whines about "liberal bias." I also think there should be fact-checking for letters to the editor, and letters that assert things that are not truthful (which happens all the time in my local paper) should not be published. They're just "opinion," you say? Bullcrap. If your opinion isn't based on the facts, it isn't worth diddleysquat.
