On FlackCheck.org this week:
- View FlackCheck.org’s wake for a leaked attack plan, ask whether 2008 McCain ad maestro Fred Davis has a demonic sheep fixation and mull the meaning of his firm’s disparaging asides about its former client, Senator McCain.
- Find three additions to the Patterns of Deception page, one illustrating the ways in which an image was changed to vilify, one showing “misappropriation of the credibility of news” and a third documenting an instance of false causality (post hoc ergo propter hoc).
- Find out what the Obama campaign’s Julia should know about health coverage for pregnant women that “The Life of Julia” isn’t telling her (click here).
And learn the answers to questions that include:
- How are Chamber of Commerce ads misleading voters about the status and effects of “Obamacare?” (Videos here and here)
- Is there a pattern to Governor Romney’s attacks? (Click here)
- Who alleged that in his heart President Obama is “not an American” and who doubted that the incumbent’s view could “get any gayer?”
