Sometimes you read a news story. There’s no one element that is necessarily false, but the whole story is so misleading, that it isn’t news, but propaganda. Or, to put it more bluntly, it is a lie. If someone would read today’s front page story Mercy and Social Media Slow the Noose…

It’s difficult to say, but I vote ever-so-slightly for “true.” My opinion of John Kerry is very low, but I think more of him than I do of Obama. The following seems quite characteristic of the president: An Israeli…
