First we have dead voters, now the boys (Obama and crew) from Chicago operating the White House have fictitous congressional districts that reeped the benifits of the stimulus.

Question now is, Show me the money, where did all that money go that supported this wonderfull example of the stimulus working.

To be more specific, the White House isn't inventing this data, they just aren't fact-checking at all.

Still shameful and wrong, but lazy and negligent rather than willful.
 
But yes - the White House ought not post information about economic indicators that have not been confirmed as accurate.  I don't care how "Web 2.0" this administration is, the White House web site should be held to a higher standard than Tila Tequila's Myspace page.

Obviously $18,000,000 wasn't enough for their website... If you wanted accuracy, you would have to pay MUCH more than that...
 
 
silly "grub"ment, all they had to do was hire Drudge and give him some food vouchers and he could have done it for almost nothing... And the facts would have been correct.
They tremble at my name...

Or maybe they are tired of being called out for their obvious bias...
 
Here is more proof that fox news is fair and balanced, while the others aren't...

"S. Robert Lichter is professor of communication at George Mason University, where he directs the Center for Media and Public Affairs."

You will have to forgive me if I choose not to believe a commentary about how great Fox is that based on a report by an organization which is directed by the author of the commentary, who just so happens to be a former Fox contributor.  "This is true because this report I wrote says it is!!"

So that proof doesn't say they're fair and balanced at all.

in fact all it says is that Fox is conservative and that CNN and MSNBC are not.

Also, I REALLY need to know why these people are mentioned:

"liberal commentators, such as Comedy Central's Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert and HBO's Bill Maher."

Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Bill Maher are comedians. They are nothing more than this.

Might as well start naming Jeff Foxworthy, Lewis Black, and countless other random comedians who said something about a president.
Que pasa?
