Debbie Wasserman Schultz has decided to make her debut as DNC chair by making sure that her facts don’t coincide with the truth when it comes to describing Paul Ryan’s plan for Medicare. Nice to see that Glenn Kessler is on the case, but as with other such situations, the media is only going to prove its worth by piling on and drumming into the national consciousness the fact that Wasserman Schultz is telling fibs. Politicians shouldn’t be rewarded for bad behavior, after all.
In the meantime, let it be noted that there is a lot of demagoguery flying fast and furious regarding this issue. It would be nice if information consumers stopped believing in it, and if port side bloggers stopped trying to disseminate it. It’s not recommended to look ignorant or dishonest on the Internet.
