The Audacity of Truth

March 9th, 2009 7:56 PM

You come to NewsBusters for the reporting the American Media just won't do, to hold truth to power, and to point out when they look the other way as their ideological leader does things like give an easy button to Russia, or claims that cars were invented by Americans, while getting economic advice from someone who can't actually make money. 

And in hindsight, I almost have to admire Bill Clinton for how he was able to stretch a penny of truth into a dollar. Obama, he doesn't even try, and shame on you if you won't swallow his lies because like claiming Americans invented the automobile, it's only for our benefit. In his stem cell announcement Obama said: 

"scientists believe these tiny cells may have the potential to help us understand, and possibly cure, some of our most devastating diseases and conditions... To spur insulin production and spare a child from a lifetime of needles... But that potential will not reveal itself on its own. Medical miracles do not happen simply by accident."

Actually, some medical miracles do happen by accident, and it's funny Obama specifically mentions insulin, which was discovered by accident in 1889. Also discovered by accident: allergy, pap smear, X-rays, quinine, the smallpox vaccine, Viagra, coumadin, epilepsy medication, and a little thing called penicillin.

So don't believe everything you hear, even if it you hear it from a President.
