It turns out that much of the outrage and faux outrage burning up the airwaves on talk radio and FOX "News" are bogus. Death panels. Acorn helping pimps. Countless others. The problem is, the stories make a big splash, take root in right-wing world, and then after they are disproved, nobody notices. And there are real consequences, such as the folding of Acorn, an organization for helping poor people vote. For no good reason.
Check out this edition of Rachel Re: Let Them Eat Fake, for a lengthy list of bogus stories you may not have known are bogus.
