Yeah ... I know what you mean.
This very problem is why I like Mark Levin so much. He is meticulous about showing his numbers when he is drawing some conclusion -
for instance when he's talking about the health care numbers like how many un-insureds we have to help with this health care reform plan, he is taking his numbers straight from census figures and government agencies, and he clearly tells where he's getting them from.
(By the way, Mark Levin's number is 11 million - far closer to the man talking about 5 to 10 million in the news clip than to the 47 million cited by liberals pushing to pass the health care bill.)
You are entirely right that we have to listen skeptically to what we're being told. ... The recent fabrications used to bar Rush Limbaugh from a business deal which he had been ASKED to make are a perfect example of that.
It is now so common that reporters glossed over the blatant lying !
