Study: Fact-checkers find Romney/GOP lie twice as much as Democrats
via AmericaBlog —
Facts have a liberal bias. And lies have a conservative one.
This study is from George Mason University, a lesser college in the Washington, DC area that is known as a hotbed of conservative activism. So take anything you ever hear from “GMU” with a huge grain of salt. Often there’s a conservative bias, and funding stream, underlying folks from that university.
This study, by the self-proclaimed non-partisan “Center for Media and Public Affairs” – which has been accused of conservative ties in the past – finds that media fact-checkers found Mitt Romney and the GOP lied twice as much as Democrats. It’s some coincidence that the study came out just a few weeks after the Republican party collectively decided that it’s time to start tearing down fact-checkers.
In any case, the study found that the fact-checkers rated Romney and the GOP liars twice as much as they rated Dems as liars.
