Who Cares if You Misrepresent Facts, As Long As It Tells a Good Story...?

What's In a Number? That Depends on How You Define 'Homeless'
Friday, March 13, 2009
A well publicized report this week that an estimated 1.5 million American children experienced homelessness in 2005-06 did not use the federal definition of homelessness. Instead, it used a different definition that grossly inflated the actual number.

The difference? About 1,170,000 children.

Yeah, but the story is so much better when you inflate the numbers by 1,170,000! Come on, facts are for dumbies! Facts and data just cloud the picture and don't support the MSM storyline about how bad the Bush years were.... And what if the number of actual homeless children increase under BHO's watch? If you use the real number now, how with they be able to use the small numebr then?

Come people! You have to start thinking like liberal journalist! Do expect data to ruin a good story?
