Clart Kent Returns!

Clark Kent returns to put the spotlight on the dishonest.

There may no longer be a need to complain about reporters. For months, there have been reports on what Democrats and Republican candidates say, with very little fact-checking. After the Vice Presidential Debate there was a flood of reporters checking the facts. Imagine becoming an informed voter, just by watching TV!

Thanks to spell checker we can all spell Mississippi. Even Jimmy Olsen could now spell Afghanistan, and could easily get the scoop on who Lex Luther is.

Mostly the reports showed Ryan’s lies and Biden’s slight exaggerations. See a list of Ryan’s whoppers at politicususa.com, and how Ryan lies, and Biden can be slightly less than 100 percent accurate at nbcnews.com 

Now it is so easy to check the facts on the Internet that even TV reporters are doing it. They love it when they can place a graphic on the screen that has “not true” checked off. Could the days when politicians “got away with murder” be coming to an end? This is all good news for Obama.

The reason Republicans complain about the size of the “liberal media” may be because a good percentage of reporters do investigate or at least become aware
of the facts. Reporters are not able to leap tall buildings, move faster than a
locomotive, or stop a speeding bullet, but in a way they can be like super heroes
when they perform their jobs like Clark Kent or Lois Lane.

why does Ryan tell "whoppers" and Biden is just "less than 100 percent accurate" ?

Maybe because that is how the so called "unbiased" MSM reports it

I did think that it looked sloppy to have politicususa.com posted, but it is backed up with links to The Hill, The Washington Post, and FactCheck.org.
