On Friday, in the random links, I highlighted a WaPo column that was wrong wrong wrong on the claimed facts, and was yet another in a long line of leftist hackjobs attacking the bogeyman Koch brothers.
The gentlemen at Powerline did an excellent job at showing how the claimed facts were not at all facts, and how the overall tone of the article stood in stark opposition to the facts regarding the Koch’s position, or lack thereof, to the Keystone pipeline.
The WaPo responded to this, in a thoroughly mendoucheous manner, basically admitting their figures were not right, the Koch bros were not the largest leaseholders, but they might be, if we are to take the word of their un-named well placed industry source who claims their holdings are the largest, almost double what currently documented. They then justify their article by claiming they are highlighting the inflammation of emotions that the Koch brothers are having on the next election cycle. A new spin on fake, but justified.
This is the unbiased MFM in action. Click on the links. And they are just getting warmed up.
