Blogs and Half-Truths

The Washington Post discusses the role of blogs. They note that, "Many are run anonymously, allowing people to express their views freely -- and giving them an easy way to spread rumors and half-truths."

In other words, the more things change the more they stay the same. Spreading rumors and half-truths has been the Republican strategy for years, with or without blogs. For example, we went through a recent Presidential election in which John Kerry was demonized by Republicans without them responding to any of his actual positions or his real record.
