MooPig's Fact-Checker Department :: "Harry Reid"

Public Record is not so Public, is it?!

It doesn't matter now, Romney got shellacked in the election, but did he or did he not pay income taxes for ten years? I still would like to know how far old Mitt went in his money grubbing years with Bain Capital.

It looks like this is something a member of the citizenry of the USA is not meant to know. DRAT!

Another factchecking fiasco : CJR: "A week ago, The Huffington Post’s Sam Stein and Ryan Grim published an article repeating Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s claim that GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes for ten years. Though Reid provided no evidence other than hearsay about what he was told by an unnamed Bain investor (which HuffPost clarified in the ninth paragraph of the story), the story set in motion a controversy that exemplifies how partisans and ideologues exploit the structural weaknesses of journalism and factchecking."

Read entire article HERE ...

The facts that would exonerate or validate the income tax dodge "went by way of misleading half-truths and strategically ambiguous language to promote agendas."
" ... No one, including Reid, has seriously contested the claim that his accusation is unsubstantiated. Instead, Romney opponents and critics of factchecking organizations have relied on a series of semantic maneuvers to try to change the issue. This approach has often been successful—in part, it seems, because the GOP nominee has breached a norm in not releasing more tax returns, creating an impression among reporters that he has something to hide. ... "
" ... The highest ranked Democrat in Congress, Reid is known more as a back room brawler than a public flamethrower. So his willingness to throw this private conversation into the media frenzy over Romney's taxes underscores the low opinion he has of the Republican candidate. (HUFF POST. 07/31/2012. LINK) ... "
