From Jim Gilliam's blog archivesYet another O'Reilly lie from the Russert show
August 9, 2004 7:52 AM
Bill O'Reilly: "In the state of Florida, which is one of the states that's going to be the election (unintelligible), you got over 60 percent saying the economy is good or excellent."
The headline from the Rasmussen poll, released on June 14th: "37% in FL say Economy Good/Excellent"
Apparently, it's Mr. O'Reilly who "lives in a world of his own," and not "Mr. Krugman."
UPDATE: Katie Barge at Media Matters sent over a more recent Gallup/CNN poll from July 22nd that must be what O'Reilly is referring to. It shows 54% of likely Florida voters rating the FL economy as "good" or "excellent", and 51% of registered voters. So this is more of an O'Reilly exaggeration, than an out-and-out lie.
