57. How about setting the record straight then. Which of the articles
linked are incorrect? Just saying 'people who hate Obama, (btw, WHO, other than the far right, 'hates Obama'?) believe the Media never lies' doesn't explain what you mean. Which media? We all know the MSM lies in every way possible either by omission or otherwise. So I assume you are talking about Republicans, but I'm not sure.

If something in the OP is wrong, then point it out so that people do not use it again.
