    It seems that this race has evolved into a campaign of lies versus a campaign of truth.

    Coakley lied about Brown's postions in the debate.

    Coakley's campaign ads lie about Brown's record and his positions.

    And now she even has the Boston Globe doing her bidding and lying about what Brown has actually said.

    And yet the Brown campaign has yet to lie once about Coakley and her record or positions on the issues.

    Why? Well that's easy. He doesn't have to lie since the truth is damning enough. Coakley, on the other hand knows the truth is her worst enemy right now so she's slinging lies full throttle because an ill-informed electorate is her best chance of winning.

    True story. :thup:

    Except...you are more than likely lying that the Globe is doing her bidding.

    I guess you weren't paying attention to your own lying thread on the topic. :lol:

    I don't think the Globe purposely set out to print a story they knew was incorrect. Shoddy journalism isn't the same thing as doing someone's bidding.

    But of course, there is FOX. :eusa_eh:

    You obviously know very little about the Boston Globe.

    Do you even know that it's owned by the NY Times? :eusa_whistle:

    Let me see your evidence that they did this on purpose.

    What? Why? You do not demand prove Bush did anything on purpose, but call him a liar, now don't you?

    Your fastest horse often comes in last place.
