Al Franken does a great job of pointing out right wing lies. He regularly plays a clip from
Rush or Bill O'Reilly and then takes it apart with cited facts. In one case, where Bill O'Reilly
mis-quoted Condoleeza Rice, and continued to do so after his mis-quote was pointed out to
him, Al played the tape of Condoleeza's speech, where the mis-quote was quite clear.

I don't listen to all of them, but I'm not under the impression that any liberal talk host
deliberately lies, as certain right-wing columnists do. I do think that some of them play a lot
more fast and loose with facts than Al Franken does, but I don't listen to them very much
because I don't like ranting, on either side.
