MSM Lie # 41 - New York Times repeats the Florida recount lie

Paul Krugman of the New York Times can't let go of the Florida recount issue and can't help himself from lying about the facts. Brain-Terminal sets the record straight:
In a New York Times op-ed piece, Paul Krugman pulls a fast one with the truth:

Two different news media consortiums reviewed Florida's ballots; both found that a full manual recount would have given the election to Mr. Gore.
Sorry, Paul, but that's just not true. In fact, the two studies commissioned by various media organizations found the exact opposite: Bush would have won a full state-wide recount.

I found Brain-Terminal's post at Daily Pundit:
There's your model, Jay, and it is a model for the utter collapse of media as we have known it in the past. The only currency it ever really had came in two forms: monopoly and trust. The first is utterly shattered, and the second was spent long ago.
emphasis added

See the entire list.
