    Yet another example of the leftwing media jumping on bogus information and spreading it as truth. The person who filmed the clip used to promote the Tea Party N-Word Meme has admitted he didn't hear the epithet and that his film clip doesn't contain it.

    He wanted to believe he heard it - but the truth is, he didn't. It's a leftwing fantasy that the N-Word incident occurred.

    ...Only 22 seconds of video have emerged from the time in question, filmed by Lee Fang of the liberal American Progress think tank. His YouTube clip — labeled as being filmed about five minutes after the crowd rushed Lewis and Carson — has been posted by Breitbart and dozens of blogs accusing Democrats of lying.

    Fang told the AP he was standing "pretty far away" across Independence Avenue from the Cannon building when he saw the crowd erupt, so he hurried over. Fang did not hear the epithet, but he said he believes it was used. "The hatred was palpable," he said.

    Some conservatives insist the absence of racial epithets on Fang's video and the 48-second clip show there was no hate.

    "If it didn't happen on YouTube," says a regretful Fang, "it didn't happen at all."

    Considering the Enthusiasm with which this Faux Meme was spread, I'm sure you already know.

    Just check your talking points.

    I wonder why they haven't jumped on the story about Bobby Jindal's campaign manager and her husband who were attacked in New Orleans Saturday night and beaten to the point of requiring hospitalization (broken legs, concussion, lascerations) by an anti-Teaparty group?

    mmmm
