This morning the top story on NBCNEWS.COM is "Ryan revs up GOP crowd with conservative call to action." Instead it could be "Ryan revs up GOP crowd with lies."
Most Americans get their news from just a few corporate media outlets. And when you test what people think they "know" about the news you see how miserably the media are informing the public.
