the Right's new smears

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Christopher Hayes’ “The New Right-Wing Smear Machine” at The Nation discusses conservatives’ up-and-coming method of disseminating disinformation (in addition to Faux News, talk radio, wingnut websites, the conservative op-ed pages, and the Moonie Times): email hoaxes. Hayes dissects a few hoaxes that I mentioned here but omits several other obvious choices, including the recent exchange student/wild pig tall tale.

Hayes also mentions My Right-Wing Dad, a useful site for those of us dealing with family and friends who mass-mail these mistake-ridden missives.
