Election 2012

Known Liars Should be Banned from TV

Here's Sununu on CNN yesterday lying about welfare reform. Again.

Evidently, CNN prefaced the interview with a fact-check segment about the Romney campaign's obviously false assertion (and racial dog-whistle) that the president "weakened" or "gutted" welfare reform when, in fact, Republicans all across the country specifically requested latitude on further implementing the law. But this lie is at least two weeks old by now, and Sununu has proved himself to be a dishonest guest. Why continue to have him on? Known liars should be banned from television. The fact-checking can continue just fine without allowing the liar to repeat the same nonsense over and over and over. The end result is, once again, the presentation of "both sides" when one side is obviously and totally lying, and, therefore, shouldn't even get to be a "side."
