How about this, for example:
"That's what he says he has done." Note how Franklin Graham, who oughtn't to be regarded as an authority on ANYTHING, qualifies Obama's Christianity (and why does he even have to be a Christian) as "he says", implying "He could be lying."
Lost in the Pew Research poll that proves conclusively that Americans are incurious, willfully ignorant, bigoted, narrow-minded, xenophobic morons, is where these incurious, willfully ignorant, bigoted, narrow-minded, xenophobic morons got the idea in the first place
Six in 10 of those saying Obama is a Muslim said they got the information from the media, with the largest portion — 16 percent — saying it was on television. Eleven percent said they learned it from Obama's behavior and words.
And every time John King gets up there to talk about the "confusion" over Barack Obama's religion, the lie gets out there again and again and again. And all it has to do is get out there to be taken seriously. The idea that the Bush Administration was behind the 9/11 attacks remained on the fringe because the media left it there. But let a black guy with a funny name get elected, and suddenly speculation based on nothing but people who want to use the word "Muslim" becuase it's not acceptable to call him a "N-----" becomes something to be discussed endlessly on cable news.
And a lie it is. It is not "confusing." It is not "misinformation". It is not a "controversy." It is not "speculation." It is not "Some say..." It is a LIE. That nice one-syllable word that even an incurious, willfully ignorant, bigoted, narrow-minded, xenophobic moron can understand.
