Russian lie monopoly.

This was announced on Fox Business News sometime in the last two weeks on Stuart Varney's show, IIRC. The speaker was former Goldman Sachs partner, Peter Kiernan:
Anybody, and I've had some experience with Russia, anybody who does and deals with Russia will not be shocked when they hear that Russia does not always tell the truth.
This was put forth with no challenge from the host. It's as though Russia and its nefarious leaders and people have cornered the market on speaking lies.

It wasn't that long ago that the U.S. president was talking about how if you like your health plan you can keep your health plan, that millions of Americans who "have stopped looking for work" are not unemployed, that "Fast and Furious" began under Bush '43, that a YouTube video led to the attack on the U.S. Consulate and CIA Annex in Benghazi, that the Coalition air attack on Syrian Arab Army troops in Deir ez-Zor was a mistake, that Assad used nerve gas in Ghouta, and that America is a Muslim nation. Another president denied that he didn't have sex with Monica Lewinsky and yet another one promised that he would not approve new taxes.

It's as though intelligent people here have the memory and attention span of a spaniel.

This kind of nonsense on Fox is par for the course. Gen. Jack Keane and LTC Ralph Peters routinely peddle the notion that Russia is dead set on an expansionist foreign policy and K.T. McFarland echoed their sentiments when she regularly appeared on Fox before going over to the National Security Council.

Something is being sold big time. As seen on TV!
