Who knew the fawning love affair between the old guard media and President Obama could produce such irony? Toledo’s top blogger Maggie Thurber documents how in the same interview her local newspaper quoted Obama as being concerned about the blogosphere for having “no serious fact-checking”, while failing to fact-check exaggerations and distortions from Obama.
People who believe everything they read in the newspapers as the standard of gospel truth deserve pity. People who uncritically accept Obama’s statements on important issues of the day as factual betray their own painful naivete. People who read a newspaper’s interview of Obama without raising an eyebrow of suspicion…? Judge for yourselves.
Thanks, Maggie (and thousands of other top-notch bloggers), for doing the serious fact-checking.
