This made me laugh out loud:
And then you read the article, and the Democrats calling for her resignation are some state Senator somewhere and former Lieberman aide Dan Gerstein. This is not a news organization, it is the propaganda wing of the GOP.
In related news, Steve Benen notes that Breitbart’s clowns at Big Government dropped the ball again, and wonders why they don’t have a better fact checking system and states “they never learn.”
The answer, of course, is simple. They don’t care about facts. They care about narratives and spreading propaganda. It doesn’t matter if they have completely made things up, it will be conventional “wisdom” with wingnuts that Bertha Lewis was at the White House. And crazy as that sounds, they are remarkably successful at spreading bullshit and making people believe it- see the ACORN nonsense from this summer, which has now turned out to be absolutely nothing. The last I checked, the beltway stenographers were all upset that they didn’t investigate harder.
Breitbart and Big Government learned, all right. They learned that it doesn’t matter what you make up, if you can get enough people repeating it, you can convince our investigative journalists that it is true. It’s a huge joke and I wouldn’t be surprised to learn every political reporter in the country has been taken by a Nigerian email scam.
