The Paul Ryan-deranged Left developed a strange new respect for Fox News overnight.

Progressives lavished praise on Fox for publishing a “fact check” of Ryan’s GOP convention speech that called it “an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies.” Naturally the highly retweeted column included too-good-to-check falsehoods like this one:

While Ryan blamed President Obama for the shut down of a GM plant in Janesville, Wisconsin, the plant was actually closed under President George W. Bush.

The plant closed in 2009 while Obama was in office.

What these genius libs failed to note is that the piece was an opinion column written by progressive activist Sally Kohn.

But never mind that. Even Fox knows Ryan’s pants are on fire. It was reported as straight news, right lefties?

Bless their hearts.

Filmmaker Michael Moore got in on the action, retweeting tweets from bathtub boy Keith Olbermann and dull comedian Patton Oswalt.

And the flock of progressive parrots couldn’t wait to spread the word.

One lib tried to rain on the Ryan-bashing parade.

Honesty and reading comprehension? That won’t do. Time to get with the liberal program, doll!


Sally Kohn weighs in:

Hey, she’s trying. Very trying.
