I received an email from The Daily Kos saying “Click here to see 25 journalists and pundits call out Paul Ryan for lying, and please share the list with friends over Facebook, Twitter or other social networks you belong to.”
I figured it was easier to pass this link on to you than it would have been to make 25 separate blog posts.
I haven’t followed any of the links in The Daily Kos article yet. I figure I can pretend to be Faux Noise for a day and report first and verify later. If I find any of the links to be misleading in themselves, then I will be sure not to bother to report back here.
I have mixed feeling about clicking on the following link from the article:

I have barely begun to read the Faux Noise article and it already beats the part quoted by The Daily Kos. To all your friends that insist that Faux Noise never lies, I beg of you to send them a link to this Faux Noise item.

On the other hand, to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech. On this measure, while it was Romney who ran the Olympics, Ryan earned the gold.
The good news is that the Romney-Ryan campaign has likely created dozens of new jobs among the legions of additional fact checkers that media outlets are rushing to hire to sift through the mountain of cow dung that flowed from Ryan’s mouth. Said fact checkers have already condemned certain arguments that Ryan still irresponsibly repeated.
