To Make Us Dumber



In its quest to blind its already deaf and dumb audience, Fox "news" adds to its disinformation campaign a "calculator" that purports to show individuals their "share" of the cost of health care reform. Unsurprisingly, it's complete bullsh*t.
For all these reasons, Fox's calculator can't be taken seriously. Its calculations are basically nonsense, and I hope that it dies a quiet death before its numbers are widely repeated without any context. There are many valid reasons to oppose (or support) the health care reform that passed last March, and it's important that we continue to have that debate without resorting to nonsensical numbers.

Gee. The article calls for serious debate, based on serious inquiry.

That'll be the day. Teabaggers will see to that.
