In a media universe where you’re likely to find right-wing conservatives on ABC, Fox, or NPR, the facts don’t matter; only the framing. And in the hands of biased pundits posing as objective journalists, the framing is always going to be the same: pro-military, pro-government, and pro-war. David Potorti

[The Right] lie with impunity. Let’s face it. They’re liars. They lied about the reason they took our sons and daughters to war. They spend millions of dollars in campaign ads saying they are for a prescription drug benefit under Medicare while they work to destroy Medicare and replace it with private plans and HMOs. They call their dirty air legislation Clear Skies and their plan to give the timber companies our trees, Healthy Forests. They call their job-killing economic program a jobs program. They say they are for peace when they are for war. Millions of children are left behind under their miserly No Child Left Behind education bill. They tout a child tax credit for working families and then silently drop it in favor of more tax cuts for millionaires. Jan Schakowsky
