Posted on 05/23/2011 11:08:18 AM PDT by KeepUSfree
I want to create a "media misinformation quiz" to give to my liberal friends. My goal is to show folks HOW MUCH that they believe is wrong and how much propaganda, lies and misinformation the media has shoved down their throats.
I am looking for questions like: Who said: "I can see Russia from my house!" ? Everyone here knows it was Tina Fey...however many, many folks actually think Sarah Palin said it.
Other questions I have thought of are: Who had better grades in College - Bush or Obama ??
Which party ended slavery in the USA?
I'm sure you can see where I am going with all of this. I would REALLY appreciate any questions y'all can come up with.
I would like to have 20 questions - of which I would hope most liberals would get half wrong....
I KNOW I am going to get some good ones...so have at it folks.....
(BTW...this is my actual FIRST post after about 12 years of participation - so I MAY have done this improperly...if so, sorry and too bad!)
please ping me when you get your quiz ready - thanx!
Which party has the most millionaires in congress?
Which party opposed the civil rights bill?

Which recent Presidential candidate claimed to have visited 57 states... with one more to go? (Obama)
Who was the only U.S. President to have been the leader of a labor union? (Reagan, Screen Actor’s Guild)

One Reporter’s Opinion Liberal Hypocrisy
It is this reporter’s opinion that a new book by Peter Schweizer, “Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy,” does a brilliant job of exposing the blatant hypocrisy of liberals who loudly espouse principals they disregard in their own personal lives.
Schweizer writes in the November issue of NewsMax magazine: “Hypocrisy has proved to be a wonderful weapon for the liberals in their war against conservatives. Yet for all the talk about conservative hypocrisy, there has been very little investigation into the prevalence of hypocrisy on the Left.”
Fellow NewsMax journalist Jim Meyers wrote, in a recent article, that among the eye-opening revelations in Schweizer’s book are the following:
Filmmaker Michael Moore insists that corporations are evil and claims he doesn’t invest in the stock market due to moral principals, but his IRS forms viewed by Schweizer show that he has owned shares in such corporate giants as Halliburton, Merck, Pfizer, Sunoco, Tenet Health Care, Ford, General Electric and McDonald’s.
Staunch union supporter Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California and her husband received the Cesar Chavez award from the United Farm Workers union. But the $25 million Northern California vineyard she and her husband own is a non-union shop.
Pelosi has received more money from the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees union than any other member of Congress.
She and her husband own a large stake in an exclusive California hotel with more than 250 employees none of them union.
The Pelosis also are partners in a restaurant chain with 900 employees also a non-union shop.
How about Ralph Nader, who claims unions are essential to protect workers’ rights but when an editor of one of his publications tried to form a union, the editor was fired.
Self-described socialist Noam Chomsky has described the Pentagon as “the most vile institution on the face of the earth” and lashed out against tax havens and trusts that benefit only the rich. But Chomsky has been paid millions of dollars by the Pentagon over the last 40 years and has used a law firm to set up his irrevocable trust to shield his assets from the IRS.
Air America radio host Al Franken calls conservatives “racists because they lack diversity and oppose affirmative action.” Yet fewer than 1 percent of the people he has hired over the last 15 years have been African-American.
Ted Kennedy has fought for the estate tax and has spoken out against tax shelters, but he repeatedly benefits from an intricate web of trusts and private foundations shielding most of his family’s fortune from the IRS. One such Kennedy family trust wasn’t even set up in the United States but in Fiji.
Barbra Streisand talks about the necessity of unions to protect a living wage, but she prefers to do her filming and post-production work in Canada so she can pay less than American union wages.
Bill and Hillary Clinton speak in favor of the estate tax. Yet in the year 2000 Bill vetoed a bill seeking to end it. The Clintons have set up a contract trust allowing them to reduce the amount of inheritance tax their estate will pay when they die.
Billionaire George Soros says the wealthy should pay higher, more progressive tax rates, but he holds the bulk of his money in tax-free overseas accounts in Curacao, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.
“Liberals claim to support affirmative action BUT THEY DON’T PRACTICE IT! They support higher taxes but they set up complicated tax shelters TO AVOID PAYING THEM. They claim to be ardent environmentalists but abandon their cause when it impinges on THEIR OWN PROPERTY RIGHTS. Liberals preach in moral platitudes and condemn ordinary Americans for a whole host of things racism, lack of concern for the poor, polluting the environment, and greed.”
But Schweizer, in his book “Do As I Say,” says that when it comes to applying those standards to themselves, liberals are bound to be shockingly guilty of hypocrisy.
After two years of research into liberal hypocrisy, Schweizer says, “What I discovered was just stunning!”
Global Warming is....
a) settled science
b) exposed hoax
Weve all heard Rush Limbaugh say journalism students
choose their careers not to report the news, but to make
a difference in the world.
Activist journalists gleefully point out the error of everyone
elses way (but their own). Being in charge of the message
and manipulation of the culture, activist journalists HAVE
made a difference. The world is far worse for their interference.
There! Mission accomplished.
Now get out of the pool and let the adults scrape off
Forgot one.. a BIG one..

You need to fashion one about the 2000 Supreme Court decision on Gore v. Bush. Every lib I run into thinks the Supreme Ct declared Bush President where (I think — but if wrong, know I’ll be informed here soon) that the Supreme Ct ruled that Gore could not hand pick which counties to re-count instead of re-counting the entire state.
I remember when a lib called Rush, and was laughing and scoffing when Rush insisted Palin never said the Russia line. So don’t think this will really change any minds.
But here are a few, anyway.

Thanks...but I probably won’t include the DUmbo one... or:
