Again: Bill O'Reilly Distorts Facts and Truth

Recently on his show, Bill O'Reilly' expressed this about the Buffet Rule: "If the Buffet Rule is passed and millionaires have to pay more in taxes then they will invest less than they do now." This is the kind of misrepresentation of his opinion as fact is a primary example of why most FOX News viewers are more misinformed than other viewers of like networks. Where does Bill O'Reilly come up with this? Why would he make this up when he knows there is no proof of this? What could be his motivation? Perhaps he can convince his gullible audience to lower his taxes. After-all, that is what works best for him (even though it hurts the majority of his audience not to mention the US economy).

Time for the UN-distorted facts, from Bloomberg News:

Global investors overwhelmingly support President Barack Obama’s proposed tax increase for those earning annual incomes of $1 million or more in an effort to reduce the deficit.

Doesn't sound like investors want to back-off at all, instead they think this will encourage more investing from the uber wealthy. Wait, the story continues...

Kaplan University & The Washington Post Fleece Low-Income Students

The last institution that a student thinks is out to completely screw over is the college or university he/she is attending. Well at Kaplan University Online, they do just that. Government reports of this "for-profit" college owned by The Washington Post Company (yes, they own The Washington Post newspaper) uncovered "deceptive practices at 16 out of 16 colleges investigated". Washington Post chairman Donald Graham denies all wrong doings while continuing to spend huge dollars to fight government regulations.

Shannon Croteau was 11 classes away from a degree from Kaplan University Online when she learned she was out of financial aid, owed $30,000 and that the degree would be worthless in her state of New Hampshire.

Scheming Rove: Show Him the Money!

Karl Rove is undeserving of a speck of respect. This man has no integrity and is a coy, manipulative, scheming man. George W. Bush has called Karl Rove “The Architect”. While I have to hand it to Rove, he does seem to be capable of running campaigns- no matter how dirty he has to get or how low he must stoop. Prior to Rove’s time at the White House, he was a Republican political consultant and strategist. He worked on many notable campaigns.
