In my last post, I wrote about why it’s hard to debunk misinformation. Two examples of misinformation I cited came from the Trump administration. Some readers suggested I should have been more balanced. One wrote, “Too bad you didn’t offer a couple examples from the other side of the aisle, like the notorious Harry Reid or the ever-panicked Nancy Pelosi. Surely there are others??”
I wasn’t trying to pick on the Trump administration, and I’m not an apologist for either Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi. Citing examples of misinformation from the liberal side of the aisle would have made for a more balanced piece, but I haven’t seen any.
So, I ask for your help. Post whatever misinformation you think liberals have spread. To keep the comparisons equal, stick with real misinformation. Pelosi’s characterization of the recently passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act as Armageddon may be over-the-top (and silly) hyperbole, but it’s not misinformation.
I’d like to hear from you.
