    ... to say, Mokurai, that it is because sports people are more enamored with statistics than political people are enamored with facts!  

    To your point directly, I was not specifically referring to Maddow or O'Donnell or, for that matter, any of the media talking heads; the "fact-checkers" would be there at the end of a political show mainly to rein in the guests. (I guess it wouldn't hurt to have them check the host's facts while they're at it, but this would be especially useful dealing with Tea Party GOP guests.)

    Rand Paul is to civil liberties as the Disney Channel is to subtle and nuanced acting. On biblical prophesy: If you play the bible backwards, it says, "Paul is dead."

      Great idea , these people make big money , there is no excuse to not have people checking the facts , and in the old days the would just say

      " we have an unconfirmed report "

      Then explain what is happening and what they know at that time , but corporate America wants everyone hyperventilating all the time , it is a bizzaro world

       I have not been able to watch cnn for a long time now , they are "zombie feeders" imo
