100 Days of Obama Spin. What else is new?

For the first 100 days, President Obama has stuck to the facts–mostly. Except for a few very small and meaningless deceptions… nothing wrong with dishonesty as long as it’s not huge right? Republicans have struck back with some of their own spin. Chain e-mails are apparently the worst culprit. Is anyone still giving heed to these emails for anything other than amusement? The medium has been completely invalidated.

Fact Check: 100 Days of Spin.

Once again the truth can be found somewhere in the middle (as long as that middle is free from bias). I do not think it is possible to get reliable facts or accuracy from either side.

This is a problem I have seen with interpreting history as well. Are the writers of the so-called history books we are reading free from any kind of agenda or bias? If they are not, are we aware of the lenses through which they are writing or even gathering their information?

    Well, he, and Washington, are still all politicians and media, all, including bloggers, usually have an agenda they are pushing, so getting ANY unbiased info is hard, especially when the “facts” change, haha.

    But when has history EVER been unbiased? US and European history has typically been, at least the version most of us learned in school, largely written by the winners of said historical situations. It’s sad that we are at a point in our soceity that we can’t even get the facts straight. What does this do and mean for future generations?!?!? I shudder to think about it.

    Steve, if it is even possible, I think you are correct. 😉
