A Fair and Balanced Look at our Right-wing Media

This is one of those days when I cannot believe that the Republicans -- and the tame lapdogs in the press who print their words without surrounding them with, in bold and red, "LIAR!! LIAR!!" -- are simply ignorant or deluded, but must be mendacious and malevolent.

-- Brad DeLong, from his article pointing out that Social Security is not in trouble.

But if the right-wing media keep repeating a lie, doesn't that make it so? Yes, Virginia, Social Security is in trouble -- but the danger is lying Republicans and the lying reporters at CNN and CBS, not a lack of funds.
