    THE BRIEFING ROOM • THE BLOG THE BLOG TUESDAY, AUGUST 4TH, 2009 AT 6:55 AM Facts Are Stubborn Things Posted by Macon Phillips Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, "facts are stubborn things." Scary chain emails and videos are starting to percolate on the internet, breathlessly claiming, for example, to "uncover" the truth about the President’s health insurance reform positions. In this video, Linda Douglass, the communications director for the White House’s Health Reform Office, addresses one example that makes it look like the President intends to...

    White House adviser David Axelrod is going to try to start his own viral e-mail responding to attacks on Obamacare. It will include responses to eight “myths” about Obamacare, and since I know all of you come to IMAO as your primary news source, I obtained those myths and the White House’s response so you can see them here: MYTHS AND FACTS ABOUT OBAMACARE MYTH: Obamacare will institute “death panels” to judge who should live and who should die. FACT: People deciding who will live and who will die will be single Obama-appointed bureaucrats, so no panels are involved.

    Did Olbermann Tweet His Anti-Twitter Screed? I’m going to summarize up front. It’s too good to drag out. Not only is Olbermann wrong about being on Twitter, he’s twice wrong. His own show runs a very active Twitter feed. As in, in addition to the one Olbermann was on about. The person who he smeared as a Fox News operative is not who Olbermann thinks he is. Even the email to Olbermann may not be what he thinks it is. In short, there was virtually no factual statement from Keith’s mouth when he named Twitter “Worst Person” and calling the...

    1. The foetus cannot be taken seriously as a person An unborn baby in its 7th week after conception Before I knew much about the abortion debate, I was entirely uninterested in the unborn baby. When it was mentioned, I accepted uncritically that the "foetus" was just some sort of overdeveloped sperm of no value or worth. Pro-abortion rhetoric convinced me that the baby in the womb was somehow an entirely different class of human from you or me, as though the mere act of leaving the womb and inhaling oxygen conferred humanity on someone. I'm not sure I considered...

    As the year draws to an end and President Bush enters his final month in office, there is much commentary about the Administration's record over the past eight years. Unsurprisingly, many of these stories assail and distort the President's record and recycle myths and unfounded allegations that have been leveled for the better part of his two terms. Historical accuracy requires a response to the litany of attacks leveled against President Bush, and while there's not enough space to respond to all of them, here are five of the most egregious:

    Other than Obama’s rude childish habit of shouting over top of McCain and making pompous faces anytime he wasn’t talking, he didn’t say much. But he did manage to do more than his fair share of talking without ever uttering a single truth, not that truth matters much in this country anymore. • Obama talked about the need for holding those responsible for the current financial crisis accountable. But he didn’t include himself, his leftist friends who turned the mortgage industry into another failed welfare program, his campaign advisors who stole tens of millions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac...

    WASHINGTON - Even when Rep. Charles Rangel tries to explain how he got into his tax mess, he mangles the facts so much it's easy to see how his accounts — and accountants — are muddled.

    British newspaper writing is famously more vigorous and readable than its American equivalent. But this comes at a price: there’s a good chance that anything you read in a British newspaper isn’t true. When I worked as a leader writer for an American ­paper I was embarrassed when I was told that it was official policy not to trust any item in any British paper except the FT. American journalists work within a stringent code of ethics. If a journalist for a major paper or TV network is found to have run a false story — perhaps because it was...

You have been told that the US cavalry constantly massacred innocent Native Americans in their villages, because of a "genocidal" expansion. It is a lie. The war on the Great Plaines was complex, and most of the time, the story behind the "politically correct myth" is much more illuminating. Watch this video.

And he declared the need to address Iran's and Syria's support for insurgents, without acknowledging his refusal to engage either country diplomatically, as many U.S. allies and the Iraq Study Group...

Campaign spokeswoman Katie Levinson, in a recent email, slammed what she called "the Angelides campaign's recent publicity stunts, unilateral and fictitious agreements and ongoing debates with themselves in the media," saying they were "an attempt by a flailing campaign to divert attention from Mr. Angelides' $18 billion tax hike."

    WASHINGTON – It should be glorious to be William Gray, professor emeritus. He's the guy who predicts the number of hurricanes for the coming tropical storm season. He works on a country road leading into the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, in the atmospheric science department of Colorado State University. He's mentored dozens of scientists. He's a towering figure in his profession and in person. He's loud. His laugh is gale force. He can be very charming. He's also angry. He's outraged. He recently had a shouting match with one of his former students. It went on for 45...

    WASHINGTON, May 29, 2006 – No good can come of speculation surrounding a Nov. 19 incident in Haditha, Iraq, in which 24 Iraqi civilians, including women and children, were killed in the aftermath of a roadside bomb attack, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said today. Marine Gen. Peter Pace also stressed that investigations into alleged misconduct by U.S. Marines in the incident are not yet complete. Appearing on CNN's "American Morning" for what was to have been an interview focusing on the nation's Memorial Day observance today, Pace told Miles O'Brien that two investigations are still in...

    A growing number of students and parents are becoming painfully aware of the anti-American bias that occurs at universities throughout the United States. This is not just a matter of indoctrination, but can actually undermine the security of our country, as generations of students learn opinions rather than facts and are taught that defending the United States is a foolish cause. FSM Contributing Editor Charles Mitchell offers the examples of indoctrination that you've never heard and raises the question - why should parents, students, and taxpayers have to pay for professors who would rather teach their own beliefs rather than...

    Ethnic studies — a relatively new field — could be harmed by the plagiarized passages and made-up facts discovered in University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill's work, a panel found. But scholars of ethnic studies, and those who have been closely watching the investigation, have varying opinions on whether there will be a "Churchill effect" on the field. The stinging report that became public last week rejected Churchill's assertion that there are different research standards for ethnic studies scholars. Panel members also found that the tenured professor strayed from the "bedrock principles" of scholarship. The five-member investigative panel arrived at...

This week, Members of the United States Senate reached a promising bipartisan compromise on comprehensive immigration reform.

    WASHINGTON — A magazine news story suggesting the Bush administration will go to war to stop Iran from developing a nuclear bomb is long on hype and short on facts, a senior administration official said Sunday. The New Yorker's Seymour Hersh claims in his report that the Bush administration is increasing clandestine activities inside Iran to create regime change and to plan a major air attack. According to the report, members of the Air Force are "drawing up lists of targets, and teams of American combat troops have been ordered into Iran, under cover, to collect targeting data and to...

Johnson's war on poverty, and a decline of nearly two-thirds from its peak of nearly 1.2 million in March 1995, officials announced yesterday.
