If true, this is a tragic consequence. Are we really at the tipping point where "everybody lies" is acceptable public behavior? Really?

Well, what do you expect? In a hyper-partisan world, winning elections becomes the only actual value. Depressing article, but spot-on.

Everyday I read here clear distortions passed along as facts, justified by "if I don't, the other guy/gal might win". The trend here of a complete breakdown in honesty bods very ill for the future of the next generations.

Amen, amen, and amen.

Truth has no party. Either we align ourselves with it or we stand in contrast to it.

This is a slanted article written by a lefty. Congress does lie, the government is not to be believed. But the biggest liar is in the White House and everybody knows it.

"...But the biggest liar is in the White House and everybody knows it...".

If Mitt Romney becomes our next president, will the DN allow comments like the one above, in deference to those who "know" Romney is a liar?

"This is a slanted article written by a lefty. Congress does lie, the government is not to be believed. But the biggest liar is in the White House and everybody knows it."

And there you have it. One side lies, but not as bad as the other. Thank heavens we have attitudes like this.... our country is in good hands. If we could only get back to the other party being in the White House, then we will have palatable lies.

Good grief... has not the partisan silliness gone far enough into the absurd yet?

Yep, only a "lefty" would complain about a lack of honesty. What does that say for the other side?
