Lying

I've quoted him before, and will again: "There's hot air on both ends of the spectrum,"–Neil de Grasse Tyson, astrophysicist. Let's take one widely repeated accusation on the right—President Obama has refused foreign assistance in the oil spill fiasco. This is a common claim, but it is simply false. I advise you to see Fact Check.org, one of my favorite websites, for proof this is a lie. Fact Check and Politifact are two of the few reliable websites for political information. Don't believe anything on Fox, MSNBC, the right-wing blogosphere, or the left-wing blogosphere. None of them care about the truth; they will lie shamelessly to advance their agenda.

Slightly different subject: Here's a few science organizations who are apparently in on the global warming "hoax": The National Academy of Sciences, The American Geophysical Union, The American Meteorological Society. There's a very extensive list at 0:52 of this presentation of other organizations in on the "hoax."
