Who is in charge:

We talked over the weekend about the "death books" nonsense. The right-wing claim is that the Department of Veterans Affairs is pushing an end-of-life planning document that encourages vets to pursue death. The claim is completely ridiculous.

But it doesn't matter. The disgusting attack worked its way from Fox News to the Wall Street Journal to CNN.
Hmm. Got its start on Fox News, followed by the WSJ. Who owns those two media properties?

Towards the end of Benen's post, he reports:
For what it's worth ... the Obama administration published a detailed rebuttal to the lurid claim this morning.
Thank goodnes the Obama admin published a detailed rebuttal. That means we won, right?


Arlen Specter wants the Senate subcommittee on veteran's affairs to investigate the "death book".

From Fox to WSJ to CNN to Arlen Specter.

Wasting time and energy on stupidity.
