VP Debate: The End of Truth

So Edwards made some accusations about Cheney and Halliburton last night. Cheney refered people to the website factcheck.com which he claimed had a lengthy article clearing Halliburton and Cheney of any wrong.

Unfortunately, the website he meant to refer people to is factcheck.ORG.

So the folks who own factcheck.com redirected it to George Soros's website which features the prominent headline "A personal message from George Soros: President Bush is endangering our safety, hurting our vital interests, and undermining American values."

Apparently factcheck.ORG (the real site) is suffering from a Denial of Service attack right now and no one can access it. However, rumors on the street are that factcheck.org's article about Halliburton does not mention anything about what Edwards was charging, so Cheney was lying when he said that factcheck would clear him.

The layers upon layers of misinformation and irony here are too thick. I think I might drown in it.
