  • Study Finds Republicans Lie Three Times More Than Democrats

    A new study from the nonpartisan Center For Media Affairs has concluded that since the beginning of President Obama’s second term, Republicans have lied three times more often than Democrats.

    The Center For Media Affairs (CFMA) at George Mason University found that PolitiFact rated Republican claims as false three times more often than Democratic claims. Not only do Republicans lie more often, but Democrats are more truthful. By a 2 to 1 margin (22%-11%) PolitiFact rated Democratic statements as completely true. The CFMA also found that, “A majority of Democratic statements (54%) were rated as mostly or entirely true, compared to only 18% of Republican statements.

    Conversely, a majority of Republican statements (52%) were rated as mostly or entirely false, compared to only 24% of Democratic statements. Despite controversies over Obama administration statements regarding Benghazi, the IRS and the Associated Press, Republicans have continued to fare worse than Democrats, with 60% of their claims rated as false so far this month (May 1 – May 22), compared to 29% of Democratic statements – a 2 to 1 margin.”

    On this surface the fact that Republicans lie more than Democrats may appear obvious, but beyond the numbers this study confirms that lying is a major component of Republican political strategy.

    The reason why Republicans can get away with lying so often is because the mainstream media refuses to challenge them. The media has become a willing accomplice in the GOP’s lie to win strategy by treating lies as equal to facts. Republicans know that they can go on television and spread their false talking points with little or no resistance from the media. Republicans have turned the press into empty headed megaphones by refusing to speak to anyone in the media who will challenge their lies. Republicans withhold access to anyone who refuses to treat their lies as fact. That’s how the game works, and it is why the corporate media turns a blind eye to blatant Republican falsehoods.

    Republicans are claiming that President Obama has a credibility problem with the American people, when in reality the entire Republican Party lacks credibility. A majority of Americans don’t believe what the Republican Party says anymore. The Republican Party has so damaged their reputation that anyone who runs as the Republican presidential nominee inherits a credibility issue.


    The CFMA study blows the media excuse that both sides do it out of the water. Both sides don’t do it. Republicans are lying as part of an intentional strategy to mislead the country. These aren’t a few false statements by individual members of Congress. These lies are party wide talking points. Congressional Republicans have based their investigations of this president on lies, and they believe that if they keep lying long enough, they can convince the American people that they are telling the truth.

    Republicans have responded to the improving economy by doubling output of untruth. The trifecta of Obama scandals that the GOP has dreamed up hinge upon false allegations. Lying has become standard operating procedure for the Republican Party. With their policies rejected, and their leadership absent, all the Republican Party has left to offer America is an endless stream of lies.

    But it's like "I didn't sleep with that guy." vs "I didn't murder and deceive millions of people."'

    Von Miller gets in trouble more than Aaron Hernandez.

        Oblivious to the fact that, as the study shows, his credibility is shot to sh*t.

            Politifact is run by two news organizations and only claims to be non partisan lol. They pick and choose what statements and what politicians get fact checked.

                    I guess what they have on their side is 9.9/10 Americans has no idea how our health system works, what is in the policies they current hold from insurers, what a risk pool even is... its really astounding how stupid Americans are with regards to healthcare... I am not even certain how to answers questions sometimes because the person askign the question doesn't understand the question their asking, let alone the response.

                    We're doom to have the most expensive, least effective system in the world...

                        Fox news alone in a sea of liberal media. They only exist because liberal media got so out of control.

                          Obamas big problem is the fact the media has no real moral ground. Sure fox is conservative and the rest liberal but when it comes down to it they will all attack when the time is right. Obama can't run for election again so the media, even his liberal media, will be better off attacking him. Also his influence wains so rich people won't care about him either. Just sort of how it is. What's funny is his big thing, healthcare, being judged on signing people up or not, and the initial cost. Hell we haven't even got to the care part yet lol.
