It's always been a possibility
"We were told there would never be a case of Ebola in the United States."
Social science without the science
"We know from the social science that children do best with a mom and a dad."
ISIS is small, but not Double A small
The Islamic State is so small it "couldn't fill a Double A ballpark in Charleston, W. Va."
A sustained surge under Clinton, too
"The last time there was a sustained surge of confidence in government's competence was under Ronald Reagan."
Wasn't true when Obama said it either
The Justice Department’s Fast and Furious gun-walking program "started in the Bush administration."
Bad dates, bad history
This Congress "adjourned earliest of any time in congressional history before an election."
ISIS getting more than 1,600 troops
Says President Barack Obama is "sending a much larger (force) " to deal with Ebola "than ISIS is getting."
Extremely wishful thinking
"There were fewer civilian casualties in Cambodia than there have been from American drone attacks."
Not pulled out of thin air, but not accurate
"Fox admits they lie" and, under the First Amendment, "have the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on public airwaves."
Closest estimate puts U.S. in middle of the pack
The United States has "the most number of deductions available to corporations" for the corporate income tax.
G.W. Bush did the gutting
"Obama admin gutted @ProjChildSafe budget to provide trigger locks and safety kits."
Buying power ≠ GDP
"If black America were a country, it’d be the 15th wealthiest nation in the world."
Not if you read the WSJ editorial
On tax inversions, the Wall Street Journal "surprisingly attacked this tax scheme."
Update: Hill says he misspoke
Marc Lamont Hill
"Every 28 hours" an unarmed black person is shot by a cop.
Shooting from the hip
"I was able to go and buy an automatic weapon … Most people can go out and buy an automatic weapon."
Same problem since at least 1954
Because of President Barack Obama’s failure to "push job creation," the black unemployment rate in Ferguson, Mo., is three times higher than the white unemployment rate.
Aired video before CNN, Fox
When news broke that Ferguson 18-year-old Michael Brown was a suspect in a robbery, "MSNBC practically went off the air for a while to have behind-closed-doors meetings to figure out how to deal with this new revelation."
Losing a job is way worse
"Having a baby is a leading cause of poverty spells in the United States."
Africa's 'Bono' missed a beat on this claim
"The music industry is the biggest export from Africa after oil and gas."
Not by that yardstick
Africa is spending "the highest percentage of their GDP on education of any part of the world."
