Fox's Megyn Kelly Grills Tucker Bounds On False Tax Claims.

Even Fox News are starting to say that the McCain team are lying. Megyn Kelly states, “I want to hold you accountable for what McCain is doing,” said Kelly. “Has your candidate gone too far, has he stretched the truth with the voters?”

Bounds then implies that McCain has only been discussing Obama's voting record. Kelly isn't having it.

KELLY: But you guys have suggested he’s going to raise taxes on the middle class and virtually every independent analyst who took a look at that claim said that’s not true. He’ll raise it on people making $200,000 or $250,000, but not the middle class.
Bounds then claims that you can't take Obama at his word. So the McCain team are now making claims which border on mind reading or fortune telling. He constantly states that Obama is going to raise taxes, which even Megyn Kelly can't let him get away with.
KELLY: Let’s stay on point, I’m not giving him any credit. I’m saying what the independent analysts say. They say that claim is false. And if that’s false, why would John McCain do that Tucker? Why wouldn’t he just level with the voters and say, “look, he’s going to raise taxes on the wealthy or whatever you consider somebody to be making over $250,000, it’s going to have a trickle down effect. That may not be good for the middle class.” But why say he’s going to raise taxes on the middle class when he’s not?
Bounds is then left talking about Obama lowering oceans and healing the sick, the implication being that both those things are inherently bad. I mean, come on, who would want to lower the oceans and heal the sick? It's crazy!

But it is interesting that, as I've been saying for a couple of days now, even the press are being stirred into action by the sheer amount of demonstrable lies which the McCain team are pushing.

You simply can't lie on this scale and expect to get way with it. And when even Fox News are calling you on it, you've stepped into the Twilight Zone.
