#25: Which is it, Al?
Franken's Lies book was researched with the aid of 14 students when Franken was granted a fellowship at Harvard.
On page xii of Lies (p. xvi in the paperback), Franken tells his readers that his study group received seven hundred (700) applicants.
That's interesting, because in an October 2003 interview with the Harvard Crimson, it's reported that "Franken received applications from 90 students detailing why they wanted to be in his study group." (emphasis mine)
90? .... 700? ... They are pretty close, aren't they? (Roll eyes)
I'm confused, Al. Which is it? Is somebody ... lying?
The credit for this post goes to Peter Schweizer, author of the book Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy. In addition to Franken, Schweizer shines the light on Michael Moore, Ted Kennedy, Barbra Streisand, the Clintons, Ralph Nader, and more. Check it out. It's a fun read. By the way, frankenlies.com is cited in his notes!
