Fact Checking The Sunday Shows - October 30, 2011

This week's Sunday talk shows included several GOP presidential contenders who have figured out that ignoring facts is a winning formula among their party's voters. While all the candidates who appeared on the shows parroted the same points they've been making for the past several months, there were also several new allegations. On Face the Nation, GOP frontrunner Herman Cain, after having adjusted his 9-9-9 tax plan to avoid tax hikes on those living in poverty, claimed that the exemption was there all along and that his critics simply misreported his plan.

Michele Bachmann (R-MN) was called out for misrepresenting immigration statistics. Rather than acknowledge her mistake and move on, Bachmann claimed that she did not say what the video clearly showed her saying. And on Fox News Sunday, Texas Gov.

Rep. King: Speaker Pelosi, Democrats Encouraged Terrorists To Kill Americans 44 Times in 2007-8

Iowa Republican Steve King channeled Dick Cheney on Tuesday night, claiming that after the Democrats retook Congress in 2006 they held 44 different votes to "unfund, underfund or undermine" American soldiers. In the Cheney/King universe, any opposition to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq gets more Americans killed.
