    It may be a re-run, but I LOVE this theme, and it’s always worth reading. Go for it, Trudeau!

    I didn’t know that the loony liberal left farmed out their fact checkers.

    It seems that I should be able to invoke Godwin’s law if somebody calls me a “denier?” I.e., they are trying to associate me with Holocaust deniers.

    I think Trudeau’s a bit off-the-mark with this series. Partisans tend not to actually make stuff up, as the “myFACTS” company implies, but cherry-pick bits of information that are individually accurate and then assemble them into a montage, from which the reader then infers an inaccurate conclusion. F’rinstance, somebody in the gun lobby plastered the social media with a graph showing number of murders committed with rifles, axes, knives, baseball bats, etc. Numbers were accurate, straight from the FBI. The bar for rifles was the shortest. If you didn’t notice they left out handguns (whose bar would have been about six times longer than the longest bar on the chart), you might have concluded that guns are not commonly used to commit murder. This was actually a pretty clumsy attempt to lie with facts, so I sorta doubt the NRA, which has access to better consultants, came up with it. But this is what lobbyists and PR flacks on all sides of every debate do. It’s much, much safer than inventing stuff that might actually be checked and found false. Indeed, do it right and even outfits like politifact will be forced to label your lie as technically “true.”

    I think GT is on the money with this one. Too bad it is a rerun, but still funny…

    I’m just trying to figure out why the new avatar of Doonesbury looks like Larry King.

    rp needs this book bad, and anybody who hasn’t read it would enjoy it greatly. It is a detailed expose of the determined effort to warp reality on the part of the tobacco danger deniers, some of whom (actual scientist/whore hybrids) were the same people. (sorry for the slur on whores and people):

    “Merchants of Doubt” a 2010 book by the American science historians Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway.

    “Oreskes and Conway tell an important story about the misuse of science to mislead the public on matters ranging from the risks of smoking to the reality of global warming”

    they didnt include handguns, cause the left wasnt including them, its was about rifles. the left would of included handguns in with rifles and then not mention they included handguns in with the totals.

    I see Doonesbury is dumb enough to buy AlGore’s swindle. And speaking of facts, it’s Gore who has none and PRETENDS he does.

    Speaking of misinformation, have you heard about that (supposedly right wing) wrestler who CLAIMS to be a Tea Party member? Talk about MISINFORMATION!
