Lies & The Lying Liars

File Under: You Can't Make This Stuff Up.

First, read Digby's "Drowning in BS".

You have to read [James B. Stewart's Blood Sport] for the full catalog of mistakes, errors of omission and downright lies in that hideous book. The idea that this guy is now rending his garments about Americans being a land of lies is pretty amazing. I guess he thinks he can "get away with it."

Rick Perlstein has coined a phrase "mendocracy" to describe how our elites have completely disavowed the very notion of honesty, even in fields like business and economics where one would assume that an agreement on the basic facts would be necessary to function. James B. Stewart is the walking proof of its existence.

And, as if on cue: Times Hires James B. Stewart, Financial Writer.

No mention of Blood Sport.
