Addicting Info Caught In Yet Another Lie

Once again, the folks over at Addicting Info have decided to play fast and loose with the truth, and want you to like and share the hastily slapped together nonsense they're trying to pass off as news.

For those of you not familiar with the back story, these guys, and eventually others like them, first appeared on my radar back in 2010. In 2012, I confronted them on taking my creative content and passing it off as their own - and that's when the shit really hit the fan. You can read about it here, but don't bother trying to post that one to Facebook since they went on an all-out campaign of reporting it to Facebook and you can't post it now without a spam warning and filling out captcha.

Like myself, my friend John Henry has endured endless harassment from them - much worse than what I've dealt with actually. For what? For simply publicly fact-checking their blatantly false style of blogger journalism that they try to pass off as legitimate news through a number of Facebook pages, including the 1 million + likes Being Liberal.

What did they do this time? Just make the completely false claim that Mitt Romney called President Obama "uppity" and ran with it, for web traffic. Here's the link to the analysis and thorough debunking John Henry did of the false story.

For Facebook pages and a website that mock Fox News and its' viewers, Addicting Info is cementing their role as the Fox News of the left.
"If you have to lie to make a point, you are not qualified to make that point and you should shut up."
