Progressives lied. Nielsen ratings died.

At Newsbusters, Mark Finkelstein catches the Clinton-Soros left in yet another fabrication.

At the 2007 YearlyKos konvention, Hillary claimed she'd helped found the Soros-funded Media Matters front group.

Yesterday, on MSNBC, Tucker Carlson interviewed Paul Waldman, who is a "Senior Fellow and Director of Special Projects" of Media Matters. Pressing Waldman on Hillary's claim, Under close questioning by Carlson, Waldman wound up contradicting Hillary's claim.

CARLSON: ...What does Hillary Clinton mean that she "helped start" Media Matters?

WALDMAN: Well, I think she's supportive of what we do, and a lot of people have encouraged us.

CARLSON: Did she help start it?

WALDMAN [pictured in the midst of this moment]: Uh, uh, no. I think she's been somebody who encouraged it and was supportive like a lot of progressives.

So who's lying? Given their track records, Waldman and Hillary are both fibbing, if that's possible.

Having seen PMSNBC's ratings, though, I'm surprised anyone even taped the show.
