Fact Check on Hardball

Crooks & Liars (my favorite blog) does a great job getting out there and grabbing videos about the media and politics.

A editor from PolitiFact was on Hardball this last week and in a very non-partisan manner debunked McCain’s attacks on Obama.

John McCain recently approved the most misleading and sleazy attack ad of the entire political season. The FactCheck.org website even has a new post up saying that McCain’s attack ad is distorted their finding.

Now McCain is trying to claim that the attacks and smears have been coming from Obama. Does McCain have any clue what is going on?

For McCain to say that “these misleading, offensive attacks must be stopped” is downright ridiculous. But then again, it’s becoming clearer every day that McCain’s strategy consists of lying and lying, hoping that the media and fact-checkers can’t keep up. It’s gonna be a long, tedious two months.

Buckle your seat belts.
