Reader: News media's supposed liberal bias a lie accepted as truth

Sam Levin's coverage of Mitt Romney's recent rally in Jefferson County included a post featuring ten rally-goers weighing in on Romney's chances of victory in November.

It just goes to show that if you tell a stupid person a lie enough times, he'll eventually repeat it as gospel.
