I guess it's asking too much of Chuck Todd to challenge John Boehner when he comes on his show and lies through his teeth. Help me out if I missed something here. He claims they're going to cut Medicare, calls the United States health care system the "best in the world" and again infers that the health care bill is a "government takeover" of the health care system. Todd then allows a guy who was handing out checks from the tobacco lobby on the House floor back in 1996 to go on about House ethics and Eric Massa's problems. To Todd's credit he did at least bother to mention John Ensign, but when Boehner writes that off as not being his problem because he's in the House and not the Senate he lets that go as well.

Here's your supposed "liberal" television network folks. I expect we'll get something similar when Tom Brokaw interviews Karl Rove on Meet the Press.

Can you help us out?
