“You are entitled to your own opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts.” Most of us know that saying but not who actually said it. A lifelong Democrat who died in 2003, Daniel Patrick Moynihan was well-respected four-term U.S. Senator from New York.
But, earlier in his career while serving as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and to India, he served under four Presidents – Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford. When we hear a news report these days, how can we be sure it’s 100% factual? That’s pretty hard in a world where almost all media are corporate-owned.
That’s why independent Democracy Now is such an important fact-finder about so many different topics, including Election 2012.
