Never Let Facts Get In The Way Of You Making A Point

I love how this current American election cycle has really brought to light the way in which some people are playing fast and loose with the facts. But even more than that, I love how often, and how quickly those folks are being called on it! Paul Ryan's Republican Convention speech earned him the hashtag #lyinRyan while the speech was still going on, for example. And even some of the TV journalists are finally stepping up in this regard, such as Soledad O'Brien's takedown of Peter King over Conservative's often-referenced 'Obama Apology Tour' that had the audacity to never actually, you know, happen.

This sort of thing must just seem so unfair to those who live in a universe where all they have to do is say something in order for it to be true!
