Did Kevin McCarthy, set a new record for Republican lies…5 times in 7 minutes on Fox News TV

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy made at least five false claims during a seven-minute Sunday interview on Fox News.

McCarthy uttered inaccurate statements to host Maria Bartiromo about a wide variety of topics — oil prices, inflation, prisoners released in Afghanistan, the behavior of Democratic state legislators, and the content of an elections bill supported by congressional Democrats…

CNN’s article then follows with a detailed relation of the crap spewed by Kevin McCarthy (unquestioned, unchallenged by Fox Noise)…and the correct facts and accurate history of each topic.

    “One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

      “On Bullshit is a 2005 book (originally a 1986 essay) by American philosopher Harry G. Frankfurt which presents a theory of bullshit that defines the concept and analyzes the applications of bullshit in the context of communication. Frankfurt determines that bullshit is speech intended to persuade without regard for truth. The liar cares about the truth and attempts to hide it; the bullshitter doesn’t care if what he or she says is true or false, but cares only whether the listener is persuaded. Frankfurt’s philosophical analysis of bullshit has been analyzed, criticized and adopted by academics since its publication” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On_Bullshit
