In describing Paul Ryan’s speech from last night, FOX News’ Sally Kohn said…
…to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech. On this measure, while it was Romney who ran the Olympics, Ryan earned the gold.
The good news is that the Romney-Ryan campaign has likely created dozens of new jobs among the legions of additional fact checkers that media outlets are rushing to hire to sift through the mountain of cow dung that flowed from Ryan’s mouth. Said fact checkers have already condemned certain arguments that Ryan still irresponsibly repeated.
If he got the gold medal for lying, maybe FOX should get the honor of hanging it around his neck.
Ed Brayton suggests the media shouldn’t even cover the RNC or DNC conventions. I think he’s right.
