It may...

Dana Milbank misleads about Arizona and immigration crime (for the most part) - 07/09/10

[IMPORTANT UPDATE BELOW] Dana Milbank of the Washington Post offers "Headless bodies and other immigration tall tales in Arizona" (link) in which he misleads about some aspects of immigration crime in that state, even if he gets some things right. He also helps reveal problems that supporters of Arizona's new immigration law have; more on that below. And, of course, he illustrates again just how...

GOP's "America Speaking Out" is worse than just a joke - 05/26/10

Following their "YouCut" stunt, the GOP has released yet another stunt called "America Speaking Out" (americaspeakingout.com, put together by Rep. Kevin McCarthy). Like YouCut, it's based on popular voting systems and lets users submit and vote on ideas in a limited set of categories.

Dana Milbank lies about Obama birth certificate - 12/09/08

Dana Milbank of the Washington Post offers "President Alien, and Other Tales From the Fringe" (link), about a press conference held by Philip Berg following the Supreme Court's decision not to hear the Donofrio case which claimed that Barack Obama is a dual citizen and ineligible for the presidency. And, it's not a big surprise that Milbank lied. Discussing statements made by Berg, he says: Uh,...

... give the game away, on the 16th Dana Milbank of the Washington Post claimed the following during an online chat: In cooperation with the Palin campaign, [the Secret Service has] started preventing reporters from leaving the press section to interview people in the crowd.

Dana Milbank/WaPo's dangerous smear of Sarah Palin, supporters - 10/06/08

Unctuous liar Dana Milbank - last discussed here in May regarding him misleading for Barack Obama - is back with an even more disgusting smear. This one a) portrays Sarah Palin supporters as bloodthirsty yahoos, b) tries to give the impression that Palin doesn't renounce bloodthirsty yahoos, and c) most importantly, raises the specter of Barack Obama being assassinated by a Palin supporter....

Scott Shane/NYT's pro-BHO spin on Bill Ayers/Barack Obama collaboration - 10/04/08

... that's extremely disingenuous. * Dana Milbank of the Washington Post. 10/6/08 UPDATE: The latest lie from the BHO campaign is that BHO had little knowledge of the radical past of Ayers and the Weatherman group. This was presented by David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs (thepage.time.com/mccain-campaign-release-on-obama-and-ayers); see Joe Klein retailing their lie above.

Dana Milbank/WaPo misleads about Barack Obama links - 05/23/08

Dana Milbank of the Washington Post - last seen here lying about Tom Tancredo - offers "Obama as You've Never Known Him!" (link), a sleazy slab of mockery attempting to portray those who have legitimate questions about the various links Barack Obama has as believers in UFOs. He discusses a meeting yesterday conducted by Cliff Kincaid and attempts to claim that all the points raised were "...

Dana Milbank lies, misleads, smears (Tancredo) - 12/23/07

... similar editorial. Now comes Dana Milbank with "Hasta La Vista" (link) about Rep. Tom Tancredo dropping his presidential bid. The problems start with the title, a childish attempt at irony. The running theme throughout is that Tancredo is angry; in fact he uses that word four times. Why is he an "angry man"? We know this because he has proposed dropping bombs on Mecca. We know this because he...

Guess the candidate (Bush appealed to Hispanics using Mexican flag, omitted guest worker plan from English-language side of site) - 09/25/04

Dana Milbank in the WaPo writes about a certain candidate's web site. Can you guess which candidate he's referring to? On the [CANDIDATE'S] campaign's Spanish-language Web site, prominent display is given to a translation of [THE CANDIDATE'S] Jan. 7 speech proposing an immigration plan involving "guest workers." But the speech was mysteriously missing from the [CANDIDATE'S] campaign's English-...
