I hate that I felt compelled to post stuff about the media unfairly attacking Romney, but our latest liberal troll is apparently Rachel Maddow's mother or something....

"This is not a test for bloggers or snarky opinion columnists or liberals on TV who talk about this stuff all the time," Maddow said. "This is a test for straight-up, report-the-facts Beltway reporters, charged with the responsiblity of conveying the importance of what the candidates say and do. Mitt Romney says he wants to be held to a 6 percent unemployment rate, but if Obama isn't at 4 percent that's a failure."

Because in this case, Maddow did not get the facts right. Instead, she invented her own facts specifically, she invented a statement and attributed it to Mitt Romney, despite the fact that he never made it.
