Reich says stuff like this all the time. The truth means nothing to the man. When called on his lies, he just shrugs and says, "That's how I remember it."

This idiot is a professor? Posting an article on a political activist website is one thing. Posting an article on a political activist website WITH NO BASIS IN FACT, is grounds for academic censure, in my opinion.

If someone knowingly passes off something like this as fact and can be so easily debunked, I would request a review of everything that professor has ever written, academic or otherwise.

This garbage with “academics” getting involved with political speech is nauseating. Stick to academic, peer-reviewed work. You’re obviously incapable of thinking on your feet.

Cmon, liberals live in a fantasy world. In Reich’s world, Fox did exist in 1994, and in 1968/72 to elect Nixon, and in 1980/84 to elect Reagan. Fox has always existed.

And he’s often described by lefties as an ‘intellectual’. Apparently he’s too smart to check his facts to see if they have any basis in reality. Was his editor asleep, or did Reich slip the article in under his nose (wouldn’t be difficult when you are a Munchkin)?

But Prof. Reich overlooked one minor detail: Fox News Channel’s first broadcast wasn’t until October 7, 1996.

The story is fake but true. Remember, progressives never let a pesky thing like the truth get in the way of their propaganda.

I don't remember the exact quote, but that does sound something like Sheriff Joe's statement. It's amazing that liberals keep trying to pass their politicians off as intelligent. Most have difficulty walking and breathing at the same time.

Naaa. By the time the left get finished defending Reich, they will have adjusted Fox’s start up back to 1993 or what ever date they need.
The left in this counrty has been adjusting history for their benefit for at least 150 years. And in the past 50 or so, they have absolutly been changing it.

Why do "we" the non-liberal elite, go along with "he/she's the most intelligent/brilliant/learned/ yada, yada, yada, when they're no smarter than the rest of us. In fact, usually less smart, no matter what their degrees.

I know where my "respect" comes from: my parents respect for their doctor, lawyer, pastor, or other person with advanced degrees.

Then in school, I was taught to respect my teachers, principal, etc. and on to college and the same applied.

Now as an adult for many years, I find that I am usually more intelligent than especially those who make it a practice (many times) to let everyone know how intelligent they are (they are always backed up by the slavish MSM.)

Hell, Reich did far worse. He went on show after show, claiming to be a Professor, when in reality, he was an “Instructor”....equivalent to a graduate school nobody. Not ANY kind of Professor. Harvard ordered him to cease and desist, or they would fire him. LMAO!

“Is this like when Obama sez that the 1965 Selma March set in motion events ... that got him born in 1961?”

I seen something similar to this happen in a movie called “The Terminator”. It is where Kyle Reese who is John Conner’s father travels back in time from 2029 to 1984 and meets Sarah Connor.

But only in 57 states mind you.

Don’t forget that Obama said his maternal grandmother “lived through two World Wars”.

Of course she was born in 1922, and World War I was 1914-1918.

As near as I can tell, the same Time Machine was at work here, as it was having the 1965 Selma March produce events that got Obama born in 1961.

There’s some good craziness going on here with time travel!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdYByptC8mY

(same links as above but just in case somebody else reads this comment and thinks we’re making it up - we’re not - only Obama)

That Obama is one crazy time-traveling dude!!

It’s neat how they’re able to reshape history.
