Fact Check: Did Ted Cruz Ask Veterans To Sell Cookies For Funding?

There’s not a lot that Ted Cruz would say that would honestly surprise me.

Take for example a story I wrote a little while back exposing […]

Did Bobby Jindal Blame Racism On Minorities Not Acting Like White People?

I was really hoping not to have to do this again anytime soon. However, once again, it looks like we have to take some fellow liberals to the woodshed for spreading false information. In case you need to be brought up to speed, we have started a weekly column debunking conservative memes that circulate social media. […]
