PostHeaderIcon Simple Questions, Simple Answers

Q: Does Focus on the Family lie and distort as a matter of practice?
A: Yes.

Note to the folks at Time's Blog, Swampland... or wherein, blogger Michael Scherer is surprised to find that not only does FOF lie, it refuses to acknowledge that lie and keeps on lying.

Had he done any research on gay issues over the last decade, it might have occurred to him that this possibility existed.

Unfortunately, we're still often confronted with the so-called "balance" reporting where somehow it is required to have two "sides" of an issue represented, even though one side is lying... and pointing that out becomes the responsibility of the other "side" rather than having the reporter doing minimal due diligence (try Googling for a change!).
