Kudos To Fox News’ Wendell Goler

Sure, he’ll probably be on the short list if Rupert and Roger are forced to do any belt-tightening at FNC, but Wendell Goler deserves credit for this report debunking the right-wing lie (seen most often on the same Fox News) that the health care reform bill forces senior citizens to meet annually with an end-of-life counselor.

As Rachel Maddow pointed out, this is a perfect case study in how the right-wing pipeline operates, from b.s. noise on conservative blogs and magazines to repetition on Fox and talk radio leading to actual injection in the public dialogue.
