Checking the checkers
NARAL's now put out an ad (video here) warning that SCOTUS nominee John Roberts has a history of being on the side of violent loonies. Factcheck.org, a project of UPenn's Annenberg Public Policy Center, put out a report essentially calling NARAL's claims lies.
BitchPhD posts NARAL's response, telling Factcheck to get a fact checker and accusing their analyst, "a recent college graduate," of spouting right wing talking points.
Atrios calls them "useless" while pointing out that Factcheck's analysis has given right wing organizations the fodder they needed to get their complaints into the major news media.
Meanwhile Kevin Drum addresses some of the complaints and makes a suggestion for an even stronger ad. (BitchPhD/Eschaton/Political Animal)
