We criticize the media quite regularly here so I’m also going to give credit where it’s due.
In this clip, CNN’s Soledad O’Brien refuses to let Romney surrogate John Sununu get away with this fresh line of ‘bull.

“I’m telling you what FactCheck.com tells you,” she insisted. “I’m telling you what the CBO tells you. I’m telling you what CNN’s independent analysis does.”
“Put an Obama bumper sticker on your forehead when you do this,” Sununu shot back.
“You know. Let me tell you something,” she continued. “There is independent analysis that details what this about and repeating a number–”
“No there isn’t,” he interrupted.
“Yes there is,” she replied.
“No,” Sununu insisted. “There’s Democratic analysis.”
If you’re going to challenge someone on their non-facts, make sure you put an Obama bumper sticker on your head first!
Now if only every appearance of a Romney surrogate produced the same outcome, we might be getting somewhere. Lies greater than those spewed by Sununu regularly go unchallenged.
