Gretchen Carlson of Fox News: Today’s “Joseph Goebbels Truth-teller” Award Winner
Today’s “Joseph Goebbels Truth-Teller” Award Winner
FYI: Josef Goebbels was the quintessential truth-teller during his tenure as chief purveyor of propaganda for the Third Reich prior to and during World War II. In fact, Joey’s reputation for accuracy, due diligence and journalistic integrity was the template utilized by up and comers like Walter Cronkite.
In a recent rant on Fox News (ca. June 10, 2011) regarding Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Obama’s stimulus funds, Gretchen said, Perry “Stood up to the of the United States and said No Thanks.”
In his Feb 19, 2009 letter to President Obama, Gov. Perry said,
“I’m writing you “On behalf of the people of Texas, please allow this letter to certify that we will accept the funds in H.R. 1 and use them to promote economic growth and create jobs in a fiscally responsible manner that is in the best interest of Texas taxpayers.”
Goshes and Gollies and Gee Whillickers, it would appear that Gretchen the Comedian’s statement is in total conflict with Gov. Perry’s letter to Obama, right?
Given Gretchen’s ongoing failures at truth-telling and given the fact that her lips were moving, it would appear that she was lying, right?
Congrats Gretchen; keep up the good work! We should let everyone know of your amazing record as one of the country’s most accomplished journalists; you are far too humble.
