* David Giuliani is doing his best to keep up with the constant falsehoods landing in 76th House District mailboxes…
Giuliani debunks both that mailer and a recent Democratic mailer, so click here to read it all.
* He’s also tweeting about ads as he sees them. A recent sampling…
* And everything is portrayed as the end of the world as we know it…
ZOMG! Orange zombies!!!
* Giuliani should keep up the good work. Few reporters ever bother confronting the blatant lies that are constantly churned out in legislative races because they either fall below the local media’s radar or they’re just so many of them that nobody wants to bother with the Herculean task of fact checking the avalanche.
In the end, however, it’s all just too much. Both sides have created alternate reality universes. Almost nothing they say has more than a tiny grain of truth, but their messaging has a much longer and deeper reach than any newspaper or Twitter account. Hence, the title of this post.
The only way these sorts of attacks will end is if they stop working. But since both sides do it, how could we ever tell?
