PolitiFact is telling pants-on-fire lies, holding Gov.
Scott Walker's opponents to irrational and strict
literal interpretations of each word in their
statements, but giving Scott Walker huge
latitude for the language and statements
PolitiFact catapulted 2 pants on fire lies this weekend -- Saturday, they overstated Scott Walker's job growth as more than 107,000 jobs since he took office -- overstating even generous tallies by at-least 10,000. The previous link clearly shows that the largest chunk of job growth came before Walker's "divide and conquer" attack on workers and should be attributed to the policies of former Gov. Jim Doyle.
Journal Communication's has to acknowledge that Scott Walker cannot come close to his signature 2010 campaign promise of overseeing the creation of 250,000 jobs -- but the media continues to mislead that it is a "work in progress" instead of "stalled", or even more accurate -- Walker is failing miserably. By every metric Scott Walker has set for himself, he is an abject failure.
Today, Journal Communications followed-up on yesterday's bold-face lie by attacking Mary Burke for being direct and truthful. How does "PolitiFact" manufacture lies from truth? Today, they resort to the lowest of frauds -- arguing semantics -- denying that it is accurate and appropriate to compare Wisconsin to other adjacent Midwest states.(WARNING: Previous link is shameless propaganda).
