    special lies with brit hume

    Something that's always good for a laugh is checking in with sites like Media Matters to see what kind of crap the conservative media has been dishing out. I thought this certainly tops my list of faux news...
    On the March 10 edition of Fox News' Special Report with Brit Hume, La Jeunesse reported that ANWR would produce "10 billion" barrels of oil or "nearly as much as we import [from] Saudi Arabia"; suggested that "experience shows" that drilling would not "hurt migrating caribou" in the refuge; and stated that the "oil exploration area ... total[s] 2,000 acres, or less than one-tenth of 1 percent of the refuge." In fact, available evidence contradicts each claim.
    Oh this guy should do stand up! The truth is, by definition, wilderness could not possibly occupy the same space with oil wells. Also, government studies have shown that there is a possibility of three billion barrels of oil in ANWR, far from the Fox reported ten billion. But enough of that garbage, let's move on to some more lies!
    Appearing on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews on March 9, Ginsberg, a GOP lawyer and MSNBC contributor, claimed that "the personal accounts -- well, it's going to be part of the solution. What this is all about is putting the whole program in a solvent way."
    What this cut-up obviously didn't know was that a "senior administration official" admitted that private accounts would not address long term problems. This confirms my belief that even though they are a completely worthless news agency, they certainly provide us with some good laughs.
