19. The Big Lie as repeated by the media
You're absolutely right about the BIG LIE, and how the media keeps inaccurately repeating that Bush beat Gore in the election. When I began researching the assassination of John F. Kennedy I was horrified to discover how many inaccurate statements have been repeated over and over. There are conspiracy myths and lone-nut myths. The media in fact has little interest in uncovering a truth beyond what they've been told is the truth. A typical example of this is the "first shot miss." This is an utter fabrication made up by CBS television years after the Warren Commission in order to give Oswald more time in which to pull off the shots. The eyewitness statements ran something like 20 to 1 that the first shot hit Kennedy. And yet "the first shot miss" LIE has been repeated so often now that almost everyone believes it. I pray that future text books will report that Gore won the election but that Bush outmaneuvered him politically, but I wouldn't bet on it.

For a look at the Kennedy assassination medical evidence, go to:
