Stop lying, MSNBC!

MSNBC.com has a new feature called Horserace, featuring tons of information about the latest news from the campaign trail. It's not a bad site.

But in the "ads" section, they have a link labeled "Bush ad: Any Questions?" This turns out to be the first (and, IMHO, most devastating) ad produced by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Effective though the ad may be, it is not a "Bush ad." It was neither created nor paid for by the Bush campaign. It does not endorse Bush. It's an anti-Kerry ad by an independent 527 organization.

MSNBC needs to either pull the ad from its site or clearly identify it as not being a Bush ad. I emailed them about this on September 18, and heard no response. The link remains. Please email MSNBC and tell them to fix the inaccuracy on their site.

I emailed them. And this time I kept it pithy. :)

You have come unhinged. It's a Bush ad.

Actually, no, it's not. But I wouldn't expect something as trivial as the truth to deter you from believing what you choose.
