Skip to comments.Shamed, Civil Beat Revises 'Fact' Check Questioning Djou's Afghanistan Combat Record
Posted on 05/27/2012 10:49:33 AM PDT by Lornik
Even after updating a May 17 Fact Check which this writer characterized as "taking three sentences from an hour-long May 1 Rick Hamada interview with Afghanistan combat veteran Rep. Charles Djou, twisting Djou's words into a pretzel and fact-checking statements Djou did not make", Civil Beat is still lying about Charles Djous Afghanistan combat record and his votes in Congress relating to that war. (See article below.)
Shamed into retracting their false rating, Civil Beat on Friday shifted to a half-true. In spite of the shift, the half-true rating remains a lie which hangs on a single sentence of willful ignorance.
Hawaii is controlled by a media (and a certain Blue colored party) that, when they cannot find facts, will create lies about those that would challenge their progressive and liberal agenda.
I am not sure exactly what this is about>
What are they accusing the Vet Djou of doing?
A little background would help.
Djou is a former congressman again running for his old seat. He voted in favor of Afghanistan while in Congress and also served over there recently, thus he claimed to back up his vote by serving and was the only one to do so in Congress.
Civilbeat was trying to discredit him by saying he lied.
I see your point now about the media in Hawaii being totally left
that really is pretty despicable, what they are doing to that Djou
despicable but not surprising
Lindsey Graham also voted for Iraq & Afghanistan and serve in both. Both Kirk and Graham served while they were IN Congress.
