Fact Checking The Sunday Shows - August 22, 2010

Congress is still on recess as the summer comes to a close, but Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) isn't taking a vacation from spreading misinformation.  On Sunday's Meet the Press, Sen. McConnell unleashed a torrent of false claims.  After blaming President Obama for the uproar over the proposed Islamic community center in Lower Manhattan, McConnell turned his attention to the scheduled expiration of the Bush tax cuts at the end of this year.  McConnell argued that the public opposes higher taxes for the wealthy, that higher tax rates for the top two income brackets would affect 50 percent of small businesses, and that the Bush tax cuts are not to blame for soaring deficits; all of those claims are patently false.  Later in the program, New York gubernatorial candidate Rick Lazio (R) smeared Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf as "not peace-loving," implying that he sympathizes with terrorists.

Fact Checking The Sunday Shows - May 9, 2010

The Mother's Day editions of the Sunday political talk shows spent a great deal of time breaking down last week's failed terrorist bombing in Times Square. In an appearance on ABC's This Week, Rudy Giuliani attacked the Obama administration for its commitment to the rule of law and informing terror suspects of their Miranda rights. In the process, Giuliani warped the facts of recent investigations -- and numerous statements he has made in the past about terrorists, courts and the rule of law contradict his criticisms.

Tortured Logic: Rep. Peter King Will Shut Down Congress Over Torture Investigations

On April 23, 2009, Politico reported the completely unsurprising fact that Rep. Peter King -- who recently made the nonsensical suggestion that the DHS should be "talking about look out for mosques" -- doesn't want any investigation into Bush era officials responsible for torture. In fact, Rep. King threatened to shut down Congress if any charges are filed, saying, "[w]e would need to have a scorched earth policy and use procedural means to bring the place to a halt - go to war." But Rep. King's defense of torture ignores reality: torture doesn't work and it puts more American lives at risk.
