Fact Checking The Sunday Shows - October 31, 2010

Republicans' appearances on the Sunday shows this Halloween were as predictable as any mediocre horror movie, with the lone "twist" coming from Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) on ABC's This Week. Cornyn lied about President Obama's stump speech, claiming that Obama wants to make Republicans "sit in the back of the bus." That's a Glenn Beck-inspired race-baiting twist on Obama's months-old metaphor about Republicans wanting the keys to the car after they drove it into a ditch, and Cornyn should know better. Meanwhile on CNN, Michael Steele pretended that Republicans are principled deficit hawks, despite turning surpluses into trillions in debt under President Bush. On Face the Nation, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty claimed that higher taxes on the wealthy would neuter the nascent economic recovery despite overwhelming evidence that the rich don't spend more when we give them tax breaks. Most predictable of all, Sarah Palin told Fox News Sunday viewers three different lies about taxes in just a few short paragraphs.

Fact Checking The Sunday Shows - May 23, 2010

On Sunday, Kentucky Republican Rand Paul's position on civil rights legislation dominated the political shows despite Paul's decision to bail on Meet the Press. Sarah Palin pushed the false notion that Paul was tricked by journalists, and Sen. John Cornyn downplayed the whole affair as a "stumble." But in reality Paul has consistently stated a sincere, controversial position. Elsewhere, Palin and Michael Steele leveled false attacks at the Obama administration's response to the oil spill in the gulf. The GOP leaders each charged that the government response has been slow. The fact is that the administration was involved from the morning after the explosion.

Fact Checking The Sunday Shows - March 21, 2010

On yesterday's political talk shows, Reps. John Boehner and Paul Ryan, Sen. John Cornyn, and RNC Chairman Michael Steele repeated worn out obstructionist talking points. Despite the GOP's slanderous attempts to derail health care reform, the bill will stop insurance company abuses, cut the deficit, create jobs, and provide millions of Americans with affordable health care coverage.
