Yesterday I nominated Georgetown 'law student' Sandra Fluke as our Doofus Of The Day #576. Turns out she resembles a Doofus rather less than she does a two-faced political hack, lobbyist, deceiver and liar. Jammie Wearing Fools reports:
For me the interesting part of the story is the ever-evolving “coed”. I put that in quotes because in the beginning she was described as a Georgetown law student. It was then revealed that prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s right advocate. In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy. During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify. This morning, in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.
In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.
While she is described as a “third year law student” they always fail to mention that she is also the past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.

Needless to say, the media are in a feeding frenzy over Ms. Fluke's remarks, and how Rush Limbaugh called her a 'slut', and all the rest of the brouhaha that surrounds this incident. However, none of the mainstream media outlets I follow have yet revealed the truth about her . . . they still continue to refer to her as a 'third-year law student'. Guess who's following the 'party line' about this? It's proof once again (as if further proof were needed!) that you can no longer trust the mainstream media to report fairly or accurately about anything to do with politics. They're peddling an agenda, not the news.
